The advantages of flexible study

Who does online study suit best?

Online study is a great option for anyone, but it’s the best option for those who want to fit study around a busy lifestyle. If you’re looking to study but are currently working, have a busy family life or are unable to get to a campus for scheduled classes, online study may just be the perfect choice.

  • Study anywhere, any time
  • Progress at your own pace
  • No scheduled deadlines for submitting work

The benefits of studying online


With the luxury of being able to study anywhere, you never need to check your commute times, pay for travel costs or worry about getting to campus. In many cases, online learning is a saving grace to those who can’t get to a location easily or safely.


Online learning bypasses the greatest flaw in face-to-face learning – having to commit to being physically present at lectures and tutorials at a given time. Online learning gives you the flexibility to continue to work, without needing to change shifts or miss classes to accommodate study and employment expectations.


Whether it’s your local library, a space at home or your lunch break at work, online courses allow you to study in any place at any time. Having the independence to study on your own terms gives you more opportunity to focus on other important aspects of your life, like family, friends, or work. Plus, with our flexible study options, you can pause or change for any hurdles life throws your way, which just isn’t possible with face-to-face study.

Studying online allows you to study from anywhere

Why our students love online learning


“I was very nervous about returning back to study after several years of being a stay at home mum, however I found the guidance and support I received throughout my studies really helped me feel comfortable… The course was flexible to my lifestyle and needs, and I’ve felt my confidence develop since starting. I can’t wait to see what the future holds now.”


“I have a 38-hour working week… I either get to work early and study for an hour at my desk, or I will study on the train to and from work. I have learnt so many valuable skills from this course that I have transferred into my workplace, including time management, goal setting and project management.”


“I had not studied formally for over 25 years prior to commencing this double diploma and was extremely nervous… Listen to the advice your Learning Coach has to offer. They understand the issues that students face studying remotely and the difficulty in balancing study with life.”


“I am a single mum and struggle with living expenses, this was one way I could achieve a qualification. There were not many colleges that I could do this, and I did it all on a 11 year old laptop. Most other colleges required that I had to have the latest software and other specifications which I couldn’t afford.”
