BENEFIT FROM
100% ONLINE STUDY
Designed specifically for online learning
Learn through media-rich course material, short engaging
videos, and interactive activities such as quizzes, forum posts
and online face-to-face discussions. Your degree has been
designed specifically for online learning to ensure you graduate
with the skills and knowledge needed for your future career.

100% online – no need to come onto campus
Everything from your course content to weekly activities and
assessments is 100% online. You’ll communicate with academic
staff and students via live messages, online discussion forums
and email. You’ll never need to set foot on campus, which is
perfect if you wish to continue working while you study.

Plan your study schedule ahead of time
All of your course content is available before your term starts.
This means you can log in and have a look at your learning
materials, weekly activities and assessments ahead of time.
You’ll have the ability to organise your study schedule and
factor in family, work or life commitments in advance.
If you know you’ve got a busy week coming up, you can
complete your course readings or assessments beforehand
so you don’t fall behind.

Fit life around study
Full-time students study two courses each term. It makes earning
a degree completely achievable, especially if you’re working.
Your degree is delivered over four terms each year. Each term
runs for 10 weeks with 2-week breaks in between each term.
You’ll also have the option to go part-time, or switch between
the two. If you need to take a break in your study, that’s an
option too. We recommend speaking to your Student Adviser
who can help you update your study plan and check when
your courses are offered.

     UniSA Online Women in STEM Grant recipient
                        NSW

        “Being offered this scholarship
     motivates me to succeed. The grant
      allows me the flexibility to arrange
     childcare for my son or take an extra
          day of leave at busy times.
      Finding a degree that facilitated my
     move into the technology sector was
      a challenge. I work full-time, have a
      child, and a husband that travels for
     work – and I couldn’t find a university
      that offered the flexibility I needed.
       UniSA Online is completely online
        and extremely supportive of the
          multiple responsibilities that
                 students have.”

PROGRAM FACILITATOR
    SPOTLIGHT
    Dr Ysabella Van Sebille
      Program Facilitator
“I have always been passionate
about health – both personally
      and professionally.
    After completing my PhD
    (Medicine), with research
  centred on gastrointestinal
    toxicities found in cancer
treatments, I have been heavily
  involved in developing new
  online education platforms
    to improve teaching and
   learning in human biology.
    The work I’ve done in this
 area, including my volunteer
roles and research output, has
  resulted in multiple awards,
including the South Australian
   Young Achiever of the Year
   in Science and Technology.
    I’m excited to share my
   knowledge and expertise
     with the next wave of
   professionals in Australia
  through UniSA Online. Our
  academic team of Program
  Facilitators, Online Course
 Facilitators and Online Tutors
  are committed to ensuring
every student is well supported
  to succeed in their studies.
 As a graduate, you will come
 out with a well-rounded skill
set that the industry is telling
us they need, no matter where
    your career takes you.”
