WHY STUDY ON DEMAND?
Designed specifically for online learning
Our team of academic and online experts has created
interactive and media-rich course material using innovative
digital technology and state-of-the-art teaching and learning
resources. Every 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
Our degrees are delivered 100% online so you can Study
On Demand. We’ve made everything completely accessible
online which means you’ll never need to set foot on campus
– all of your assessments including exams (if required) are
fully online, which is perfect if you wish to continue working
while you study.

Plan your study schedule ahead of time
Studying with UniSA Online means there is no need to be
online at a set time – you can log in whenever it suits you.
Unlike a traditional degree, there is no need to attend lectures
or tutorials in person – you don’t even need to wait for
next week’s course materials. All content is available from
day one of your course, so you’ll be able to plan your study
schedule in advance, and engage with learning materials
and activities at your own pace, whenever it suits you.

Flexible around your life
UniSA Online degrees are delivered over four terms
per year - so if you study two courses each term (which
is equivalent to a full-time load), you’ll finish your
degree in three years. It’s an extremely flexible option
for students who wish to work while they study.
You’ll also be able to dial up or down your study load to
fit in with your life. If you’re busy with work and personal
commitments, you’ll have the option to study one course per
term - or even take a term off. Simply pick up where you left off.

                                                                     9

                   OUR SERVICE COMMITMENT TO YOU

          team that’ll be there to support you, every step of the way. As a UniSA
           Online student, you’ll engage with people who genuinely care about
