Study Online

Online, distance, off-campus and external study modes are all used to describe a flexible classroom that comes to you… a flexible classroom that allows you to choose where you study, when you study, and even how you study! If you like the idea of studying on the go, fitting study around your job and learning the same courses as on-campus students, then online study could be for you! 

USQ is committed to providing an unmatched online experience, and we’re even ranked in the top 3 universities in Australia for online study (Online Study, 2016). All courses give you access to online forums, discussion with fellow students, study materials, dedicated social media groups and much more to keep you engaged and motivated! Despite not physically being in the classroom, it will still feel that way.
