Thinking about your future?

Open Universities Australia (OUA) is a national leader in providing open and flexible access to quality online higher education, and has revolutionised the studying possibilities for all Australians for more than 20 years. This includes the 200+ students who study with OUA from within correctional facilities every year.


The Specialist Liaison Team

OUA offers a dedicated Specialist Liaison team as we understand that facilitating study options on behalf of these students can be challenging for Education Officers and other representatives, and that there can be many constraints placed on students depending on their individual circumstances. As a team we offer support in administration, enrolment and support throughout your studies with OUA.


What we can do

The Specialist liaison team offers a range of support and services, including:

  • Enrolment assistance

  • Administrative support (Exams, Special circumstances etc)

  • Study planning

  • Liaising with the providers

  • Feedback and complaints

  • New Posters available
OUA Specialist Liaison Poster

We are sending out our posters this week. If you would like to not receive a poster, please contact our team on ouaeo@open.edu.au

As some students are not supported we have put our details on the poster for those to pass on to their supporting representative (Family or friend) outside of the correctional facility. 

We will always confirm with the education officer of the correctional facility if we receive an inquiry via a family member or incarcerated student.

Thinking about your future?

Open Universities Australia (OUA) is a national leader in providing open and flexible access to quality online higher education, and has revolutionised the studying possibilities for all Australians for more than 20 years. This includes the 200+ students who study with OUA from within correctional facilities every year.

We understand that facilitating study options on behalf of these students can be challenging for Education Officers, and that there can be many constraints placed on students depending on their individual circumstances. This website aims to provide clear guidelines on the study options available through OUA, and also to provide clarity around the enrolment and study processes.

OUA strives to provide opportunities for prisoners to acquire tertiary qualifications. At the same time, we must manage and balance this against our duty of care to other students.

By mail

Please assist your student in completing the enrolment form and return it via mail to:

By phone

If you have been authorised by an specialist student to contact OUA on their behalf, you can call the OUA ILT directly on (03) 8628 2941 to organise their enrolment. We can only accept enrolments via phone if the student you represent has signed an OUA Status Declaration form, nominating you to act on their behalf. If you would like this option to be available to you in the future, please have the student complete the relevant form. You will only need to complete this once, for each student, not per unit.

The student can direct you to log in to the OUA website with their account details, whilst in their presence, and organise their enrolment.
