Online

Studying online allows you the flexibility to study any time and anywhere.

While most courses at Western offer flexible study options, some are also available fully online. These courses are offered via a blend of leading edge technology tools for content presentation and collaborative work outside the classroom.

We offer a range of support systems to help you with your studies and you will graduate with the same degree as your on-campus counterparts.

With our online course you can study on your time, when it works for you, your work, family and life commitments. 

Student Support

When you enrol in our online courses you will get access to a number of support resources that will help you drive towards success.

We will provide you with academic, technical support, library resources and other resources listed below.

Have a question? Throughout your study journey (from enrolment to graduation) your Student Advisors are your first point of contact for information, advice, forms and referrals to other services. For more information check the Student Support webpage.    

Your Online Learning Advisor (OLA) is available for questions around learning content and your assessments. You will find support information on literacy, writing assignments, time management and referencing is built into your units and your Learning Management System. 

As a Western student, you also have access to Studiosity, a service which will provide you with feedback and advice on your assessment tasks before you submit them.

All University Library resources are available for online students. The Online Librarian is ready to assist by chat, email or phone. 

Have a technical question or IT issue? Your Student Advisors are your first point of contact for all technical issues. For more information, check the Student Support webpage.
