Online learning provides flexibility and convenience, which is great for anyone constrained by time or distance. You can complete your qualification when it suits you and at your own pace.
And studying online doesn’t equate to studying alone. You’ll have access to unit introduction videos, regular webinars and our unique virtual campus, MyABS. This state-of-the-art online learning management system offers a ‘community’ approach to self-directed study where you can share experiences, ideas and questions through integrated features such as chat forums, live chat, and links with social media platforms.
Blend of on-campus and online delivery
If it suits you better you can take a blended learning approach, mixing on-campus and online options to suit your situation at any given time. Classroom education may be more traditional, but the benefits are clear. It offers classroom discussions, networking opportunities, immediate access to facilities and teaching staff, and less need for self-motivation.
Our campuses are conveniently located at major business centres across the country including in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth.
