Welcome to Open Universities Australia

Congratulations on taking the first step towards a brighter future.

The welcome hub will help you get up to speed with Open Universities Australia and studying online. Getting your degree can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, but can also come with its challenges. If you ever need a helping hand, you’ve got a range of free student resources available.

One of your best resources will be other students studying online. Connect with our OUA Facebook group and network with thousands of other students who can help with any questions you may have. Many of our students use Facebook to create study groups with fellow students studying the same units, or to socialise with other students who live in the same area. It’s a fantastic and welcoming group.

With OUA, you’ve got access to a range of free support services from day one to graduation.

One of the most important tools for your success will be your Learning Management System (LMS). Logging into the LMS regularly is one of the biggest differences we see for students who obtain a degree and those who drop out. So make sure you get familiar with your LMS as soon as you get your login details from your university (usually sent in the first couple of weeks of your study period).

As a new OUA student, it’s important to be familiar to all the support that is available to you. From Student Coaches who are here to help you succeed in your studies, to free online platforms that can provide valuable feedback on your assessments prior to you submitting them. Watch our short video outlining your student support services on the right.
