Take charge of your learning with an ACU Online degree. You’ll have the flexibility to manage your study in a way that works best for you, with the option of timetabled courses that run to a set schedule or anytime courses that deliver the learning materials for you to work through at your own pace.
And regardless of the delivery method of your chosen online course, you’ll become a part of the ACU community. You’ll be taught by experienced online educators. You’ll have access to the full range of support services we provide. And you’ll graduate with a qualification that employers respect.
Study at a time that suits you with our Online Four-Term (4T) model. Across four 10-week terms, you can study your passion online, wherever and whenever it works for you. Your learning material is available to you at the beginning of each term for you to work through at your own pace. And you’ll get access to student success coaches to help you along the way. Please note, some courses require on-campus intensives or in-person placements to graduate job ready.
Our Online Multi-Term (MT) model offers more flexibility and freedom over where and how you study than traditional on-campus learning. You may attend scheduled online lectures and tutorials, study online units at your own pace whenever it suits, or a mix of both – depending on what course you choose. Please note, some courses require on-campus intensives or in-person placements to graduate job ready.
You’ll become part of an innovative and interactive online learning community studying. You’ll have human support Monday to Friday (9am–5pm AEDT) so you can get the most out of your study. And while you gain new knowledge and learn new skills to kickstart or progress your career, you’ll also learn how to make a positive impact in your community.
By studying with ACU Online, you'll be enrolling in a course that has been designed and delivered primarily for online learning. Courses are delivered via a high-quality learning platform, and you’ll have access to a range of resources and services to help you excel in your course.

Are you eligible for credit?
Credit is when you can use your previous study, professional or life experience to take the place of an equivalent unit in your course, allowing you to finish your degree sooner.
Use our credit search tool
Our credit search tool includes the units and courses from higher education institutions that have previously been recognised as equivalent to ACU units. Search to see if your previous study is on the list.
Even if your previous study does not appear in the credit search tool, you can still apply for credit. Understand the process: when you should apply, what documents you’ll need and how you can check the status of an active application.
