Online Learning

Western Sydney University is currently offering online delivery of courses due to the current restrictions on travel impacting offshore students, as a result of the COVID pandemic. Online learning can be a beneficial form of study, increasing exposure to modern workplace practices, encouraging flexibility with time management and enabling continuity in your educational plans.

At Western Sydney University our academics and teaching staff have the expertise and resources to provide a quality online learning experience. Our University has extensive experience in online with many courses having offered online learning to our students for a number of years.

We understand that new students may be nervous to begin their studies online, so Western provides a wide range of support services to make sure all students are provided every opportunity for success. We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from students, including international students and those who have not studied online before, about online classes, academic engagement and support.

If you are studying online from your home country, your classes and course content will be delivered via interactive online teaching platforms that allow you to engage with your teachers and classmates. Please note that a computer, (as opposed to a mobile phone) and internet access, is essential equipment for online study and exams.

If you have any questions regarding online learning at Western, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more.
