Studying Online

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), giving you greater choice about when and how much they study each year.


We know 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 receives five stars from students for teaching quality.

How Does
Online Study Work?


Online study can also be referred to as 'distance education' (also off-campus, 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, engage with other students, order library books, check your results and access other resources, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 



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

  • 24/7 Online Tutor Support
  • Academic Skills & Assignment Support
  • Career Development
  • Individual Counselling — for personal and academic issues
  • Special Needs Office — if you need adjustments to how you study because of temporary or permanent disability
A small number of units have intensive schools that enable students to engage in practical exercises, tutorials and lectures during intensive periods on campus in Armidale. These are a requirement for some units that have an important practical component, often in the sciences – please check the Course & Unit Catalogue for details.
