The University of Newcastle, Australia

Flexible study

Furthering your skills and knowledge to land your dream job doesn’t have to be daunting. We offer flexible study options that can be tailored around your busy life.

Choose to study either part-time or full-time with the option to complete online, face-to-face or a combination of both.*

Our online learning platform is learner centred and caters for the needs of busy professionals, giving you complete control over when and where you study.

Regardless of distance, our online learning systems allow you to interact with fellow students in a highly collaborative environment, guided by an online University educator.

If you work full-time, we recommend that you study one or two courses each trimester/semester (if applicable for your program), to help you successfully navigate study around your professional and personal needs.

Support and advice

As part of our student support program, we will communicate with you via your student email. Check your student email regularly to keep up-to-date with your program or any course changes.

If you need help with your studies, the Learning Development section of Blackboard has an abundance of helpful content. Topics include study skills, assignment writing steps, assignment types and other online resources.

If you need any assistance during study, visit our current students support page for some helpful tips.
