With UNSW Global’s online courses, you can start or continue your learning journey from wherever you like. These specially designed courses were created specifically for online learning. It’s a perfect mix of real-time interactive study and resources you can access on your own schedule. This is your path to direct entry to UNSW Sydney – from the comfort of your own home. 

We’ve teamed up with OpenLearning to design an online learning experience that will help prepare you for your chosen UNSW pathway. Even before you take your first steps on campus, you’ll have access to UNSW course material and instruction from experienced and dedicated staff. Real-time interactions, course material and feedback through an easy-to-use student portal make learning flexible and convenient.  

If it isn’t the right time for you to move away from home, you can continue your education with UNSW Global’s online study options. Build your knowledge and skills before you make the move to study overseas.

We’ve built plenty of support into our online courses to make sure you have the assistance you need to succeed. You’ll study in small groups, giving you a chance to learn with and from your peers. And highly qualified, experienced teachers will provide regular guidance and feedback to keep you on the right track. 

Lay the foundation for success at UNSW Sydney. Our online English courses help you improve your speaking, writing and academic English skills before you continue your learning path. And our Transition Program Online helps bridge the gap between Year 12 and the rest of your UNSW journey.

Study at an international centre

  • Study an international program close to home

Selected international licensed providers offer and teach UNSW Foundation Studies and the Foundation English Entry Program.  You will be learning the same UNSW approved curriculum as students on campus in Sydney, taught by highly qualified local and international teachers who are experts in their fields. This is a great way to start your journey to a world-renowned university without making the big move abroad.

Starting your international university journey close to your home allows you to focus on your studies, without the extra pressure of relocating to a new country. And, by the end of the program, you will be more ready for your move to Sydney!
