What it's like to study online
Studying online at Curtin means that you'll do the same coursework and assessments as the students studying on-campus, but you'll study where you want, have more flexibility with your time, and may use different technology and methods to complete your work.
Studying online means you'll have access to:
- 24/7 access to interactive online learning
- Social networking with other students
- A user-friendly system including a mobile app
- Tutors experienced in online delivery
- A wealth of online library resources including full text access to e-Reserve, past exam papers and journals.
- The same degree you'd get if you studied on campus
We have plenty of help available to people studying online, such as library services, counselling, career assistance, IT services and more. Learn about our support services for online students.
