What undergraduate and postgraduate courses are available online?

Curtin University offers a number of courses that can be studied either partly or fully online. Check out the Study your way, online website for the options.

Curtin Online

Curtin Online offers fully online undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Whilst some courses may not be available fully online, some elements of it may be. Students could visit the Curtin Handbook to view the units under the course structure, and the mode these units are conducted.

Students will be able to download their Unit Outline for each enrolled unit. The unit outline will contain information on the assessment method of the unit.

Units may be assessed by:

  • Continous assessment
  • Examinations run by the teaching schools
  • Centrally scheduled examinations run in the formal two week examination periods.
Even students studying a unit classified as "Fully Online" may still be required to complete an exam at either the Curtin Perth campus, a recognised examination centre or another approved regional/rural location. Please see the External Examinations webpage for further information.
Open Universities Australia (OUA)
Some Curtin courses may be available to study through Open Universities Australia (OUA). Students will still gain the same degree from Curtin University, however the OUA option offers more study periods for course admission. 

Curtin offers the opportunity to upskill with free massive, open, online courses (MOOCs) on a variety of subjects. This can be a good way to try out online learning.


Curtin edX and MicroMasters
Curtin partners with edX to offer the MicroMasters® program, which is a graduate-level university course designed with a strong focus on industry demands and marketing in a global and digital context. Successful completion of a MicroMasters credential at the appropriate level allows learners to apply for credit towards the completion of a Master of Marketing degree.
