OUA Explained: Design your study path

OUA Explained: Design your study path

One of the best things about studying online, is greater flexibility, which means greater ability to customise. Through Open Universities Australia (OUA), your study path is in your hands.

OUA brings degrees and subjects from universities across Australia into one spot, which means that you’re able to mix up your subject selection in unique ways. Pick subjects from multiple study areas, across multiple unis, to tailor to your goals and interests. This is easy done if you’re studying single subjects only, but even if you’re studying a full degree, there’s still room to customise.

Customising your degree

Depending on the structure of the degree you choose, in most cases, you can choose elective subjects from different study areas and universities. Your core subjects will come from the university that provides your degree (and your certificate at graduation) but a number of your electives can come from other unis that OUA partners with. It’s perfect if you’re struggling to decide on a degree based on subjects – you may be able to have the best of all worlds.

To find out about how you can customise a degree, check out the degree structure section of your desired degree’s webpage, which will outline what’s possible within that program. But if single subject study is what you’re after, go explore our catalogue – any pre-requisites (requirements for entry) will be noted on each subject’s webpage.

To learn more about the online study experience, watch our ‘OUA explained’ video series. We’ll take you through aspects like the time-span of your studies, study loans, and the online study environment, to name a few.
