Moving up or moving on?

Balancing study with life in the military requires a university that understands the unique needs of defence personnel.


Whether it’s preparing for promotion or a switch to civilian life, the University of New England has been working side by side with Defence personnel, for more than 70 years. In fact UNE invented distance education university courses for defence personnel returning from World War 2 and we’ve been perfecting distance education ever since.


The flexibility built into our online degrees and our deep understanding of the unique demands that come with life in the armed forces gives you the ability to stay on track even through transfers and deployments. When applying to UNE we recognise your rank, training and the workplace qualifications you’ve received on the job which may give you advanced standing into UNE courses through recognition of prior learning (RPL). We even have a dedicated pathways-to-university program to help you get started.

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?

SEE HOW

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.
