UniStart

Study Options

Flexible Study Options

UniStart is offered On-Campus or by Distance. Regardless of the study mode you choose, you are expected to negotiate your involvement in the course independently. Independent learning in UniStart means that you are responsible for choosing which sessions/topics to complete, the extent to which you participate in activities on offer, and the use you make of the resources available to you.

What mode should I enrol in? We recommend you enrol in:

UniStart On-Campus
