Only one online University has been awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Satisfaction, every year for 12 years*

There are now many ‘johnny-come-lately’ universities in online education. UNE has been delivering distance education since 1955 – that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why our students continue to rate us so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality.

Study online across three study periods with 24/7 online tutor support. If you don’t have entry qualifications, our free Pathways Enabling Course gives you entry and credit to most of UNE’s undergraduate degrees. 

If you prefer to study on-campus, UNE has a campus in Armidale.

If you’re not ready to commit to a whole degree right now, we also have our revolutionary new 
Bespoke Courses
 where you can design a short course of just 2, 3 or 4 units. Because they’re real degree units, you may get a credit towards a full degree later.

A History of 5 Star Online study

At UNE, online study is about the kind of flexibility and support that can only come from a university that has long understood the challenges faced by adults studying from home.

We have three teaching periods (trimesters), commencing in February/March, July, and November; giving you greater choice about when and how much they study each year.

How does online study work?

Online study can also be referred to as 'distance education' (sometimes also off-campus education, or external study) and provides an opportunity for you to study without having to physically attend a campus.

To make sure your learning can take place when it suits you, UNE provides online facilities which allow you to send questions, submit assignments, order library books, check your results and access other resources, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Student Support Team

As a UNE student, you will have access to our professional support services including:

  • Career development
  • Individual counselling — for personal and academic issues
  • Special needs — if you need adjustments to how you study because of temporary or permanent disability or you need diversity and equity advice.

Online Community

We believe that a vital part of online study is your engagement with the learning community.

Communication with your classmates, teaching staff and university support staff will enhance your study experience and ensure that your skills extend beyond the subject matter.

UNE’s teaching staff are experts in their field which is why UNE consistently receive five stars from students for teaching quality.

Student Support 2018 Good Universities Guide Seal

Academic literacy and assignment support is available for writing, assignments, research, referencing, and study skills.

Intensive schools are a valuable and enjoyable experience that enrich the learning process and help build your networks.
