Thanks to the technology today, 80% of students around the world are engaged in online learning. Many of the Australian education providers are now offering online study options for international students, allowing them to obtain an Australian qualification from their own home.

So what are the benefits of obtaining an Australian qualification through an online course?

International Recognition

An Australian qualification is recognized and sought after by employers around the world. Thanks to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) allows students to easily move through the education system and provides an easy way for countries around the world to recognise your qualification.


Studying online gives you the flexibility of studying from either home, at the library or in the park.

Save Money

Studying in Australia can be expensive both financially and emotionally. Studying online doesn’t require you to move countries or even homes. And most online courses are cheaper than studying on campus.

Spend Your Time Wisely

Online study allows you to study at your pace as well as not wasting time stuck in traffic or public transport on your way to university or college. You’re not restricted to a rigid timetable so you can study at any hour of the day and can still work and incorporate hobbies and interests into your study timetable.

Choice of Course Options

There are online study options for a multitude of courses and industries. Many allow you to personalise your study to suit your academic and personal needs.

Student Support

If you’re unsure how you will cope when additional support is required, don’t stress. At the click of a button you can ask a lecturer a questions, submit an assignment or even engage with other students.

Assist with future VISA applications

If you are interested in studying in Australia at a later time, an Australian qualification that you have gained online can assist with your VISA application.
