With online study, you can choose when you study and anywhere there is an Internet connection. This flexibility enables you to fit study around your family, work and personal commitments. However, online study requires a significant amount of time each week so it is a good idea to design a weekly schedule so you can allocate blocks of time to your studies.

When you study online you have access to a range of support including:

Your teachers – you can contact your teacher via email, phone or chat on MS Teams. Your teacher will give you useful information about your course and feedback on your assessments. Remember, you can ask for help any time.

Disability, Counselling, Multicultural and Learner Support – specialised teams are available to help you if you have a disability, illness or injury. You can also access multicultural services, personal and career counselling, and language, literacy and numeracy support.
