Online study

Australia gives you online access to world-class education from anywhere in the world. You can choose from short courses and micro-credentials to full higher education degrees.

There are some real advantages to studying online:

  • You can study when and where you want, often at your own pace, and balance your learning with other commitments like family and work.
  • You can still access Australia’s world-class qualifications and learn from leading academics.
  • For courses under the Australian Qualifications Framework, you can graduate with the same qualification you would receive if you were on campus.
  • You can save money on the costs of relocation by learning from home.
  • You can access extra-curricular opportunities such as the Study Australia Industry Experience Program.

Australian TNE around the world

Transnational education (TNE) programs are offered by Australian providers who have campuses in countries outside of Australia. 

Australian TNE can include a full qualification or studies to prepare you for entry (pathway) into an Australian qualification. With TNE, you can complete a full Australian qualification closer to home. Some TNE programs allow you to complete part of your studies on-campus in Australia. 

There are clear benefits to TNE: 

  • All Australian TNE programs must meet the same strict standards as courses offered in Australia. 
  • You can  access to Australia’s world-class qualifications and learn from leading academics. 
  • Employers will highly value your experience learning in multiple countries. 
  • You can study in your home country and avoid relocation costs for part or all of your studies. 

Twinning, dual and joint degree programs 

These types of TNE include studies offered by two education providers, usually in different countries (for example, your home country and Australia). 

These programs allow you to graduate with a qualification from both education providers. This is called a multiple degree or ‘joint degree’ program. You will usually study for a specific time with each provider. Studies completed with one provider will be recognised by the other.

These programs provide opportunities to experience different cultures, languages, academic systems and teaching methods. They also offer a broader perspective on your studies and prepare you for work in other countries and cultures.

Summer school and study tours

Summer school programs allow you to study during your summer break with a university. 

Study tours are usually taken by a student groups visiting Australian education providers or industries. These tours are available at all levels of study.

Virtual study tours are also available, so you can access high-quality courses and experiences and work on group projects with students in Australia from wherever you are.

Great reasons to take a summer school course or a study tour include:

  • It’s a great way to improve your English language skills, develop life skills and gain intercultural understanding.
  • You may be eligible for academic credit towards your studies in your home country.
  • Usually, summer school and study tours only require a visitor visa in Australia. 

You can find more information about summer school and study tours by contacting Australian education providers or your local education provider directly.
