For over 20 years, we’ve been delivering the highest quality degrees to thousands of students online. We were the early adopters of distance education; forming our External Studies Department in 1978 and mailing students’ course material long before the internet was in our homes and hands.  As technology has advanced rapidly, so too has our online teaching practices. That’s why we’re Queensland’s online learning experts. 

Studying online is flexible - you can visit your classroom 24/7, listen to lectures on your lunch break, connect with classmates in forums, get library resources delivered to your door, and access thousands of academic materials online. Uconnect is your online student portal that brings everything you need into one easily accessible location.
