Study online thanks to Apia and OUA

Unique client code: APIA18

Apia Good Life is excited to team up with Open Universities Australia (OUA) to give you even more reasons to start studying online. 

We know there are lots of reasons you might want to study online at University – maybe it’s to reskill, perhaps it’s for a formal qualification to boost the career you’ve carefully built, or maybe it’s just fulfilling a love of learning. Whatever the reason, we wanted to bring you some special benefits and support to help make hitting the books a little bit easier. 

Our friends at OUA will be there for you every step of the way to guide you through any questions you have, the enrolment process, as well as providing study assistance once you’ve got your student hat on.

To make the most of these benefits listed below, please quote the Apia Client Code APIA18 when you enrol. 

All the best with your study!

How do I receive my textbook voucher?

Open Universities will send your textbook vouchers to you via email (as well as some step-by-step instructions on how to use them). You’ll receive them about a week or two before the start of the study term. 

 

An essential reminder: 

It’s really important that you enter the Client Code (APIA18) when prompted during the online enrolment process, or provide it to the Student Advisor assisting you. (If you don’t enter or mention your Client Code, OUA won’t be able to offer you the benefits – including textbook vouchers – that come from our partnership with Apia.)

 

Who can I contact if I need help or have questions?

The Specialist Liaison team are experts in all things OUA and are exclusively accessible to select students (that’s you!). You can get in touch with the team on 1300 513 044 or via email at corporate@open.edu.au.

 

Does OUA offer tutoring if I need help with my study?

Yes, we do! Smarthinking is an online tutoring service which gives you access to academic support from experienced online tutors, any time of the day or night. If it’s been a while since you’ve hit the books, this support can be great to build your confidence and set you up for success.

The Smarthinking support includes live tutoring, pre-scheduled tutoring sessions, academic question submission and a handy draft essay review service (to get some pointers on your work before you submit it)

 

How much is my study going to cost?

The cost of study will be  different for everyone, depending on the number of units you study and the type of course you choose. 

As a starting point, you can pay on a unit-by-unit basis each study term, either upfront or by arranging a FEE-HELP loan through the Commonwealth Government. If you’re an Australian citizen, you may be able to borrow the full amount of your fees for many courses and pay this loan back through the tax system. For more information, visit a FEE-Help.

You’ll only need to repay this once your taxable income is above a certain threshold. You can find out more about these thresholds at Study Assist. If you have any questions on the costs of study, the OUA Specialist Liaison team are more than happy to talk you through costs, FEE-HELP and other support that you might be eligible for. Contact them on 1300 513 044 or via email at corporate@open.edu.au
