Why study online

Over 75% of our students choose to study through online (distance) education with us each year. You can be assured you will receive excellent support and won’t be alone. Some other great benefits include that you can:

  • studying from your own home – no matter where that is
  • studying at times that suit you
  • keeping your day (or night) job
  • being able to switch to on-campus or back to online study if your situation changes
  • studying the same courses with the same lecturers as on-campus students.

We were the pioneers of distance education in Australia – in fact, UNESCO (the United Nations Educational and Scientific and Cultural Organisation) used us as a demonstration unit – and everything that we have learnt on our journey, we’ve put back into our online (distance) education.

Our programs can accommodate even the most hectic lives. USQ lecturers stay up-to-date with the constantly changing face of industry, and our programs have been developed so you can make the most of your university experience.

As one of Australia’s leading providers of online (distance) education programs, you can rest assured that no matter where you live, we will do our best to keep you connected to your future ambitions. So, whether you are choosing your first career path, want to improve your current situation or are looking to broaden your horizons and study something you love, we’re ready to work alongside you to see your goals fulfilled.
