Flexible study

We all have different priorities when it comes to flexibility. You might be looking to study whenever you want, from wherever you want or at a pace that suits you best. The good news is that no matter how you define flexible study, Swinburne Online has you covered.

Explore the flexibility of our online study experience


Study anywhere

With our 100% online courses, you can study from anywhere you have an internet connection. Whether you’re at home or on the move, you can get into your studies sooner, for as long as you like, without ever needing to travel to campus.


Access anytime

It doesn’t matter if you’re an early riser or a night owl because you’ll have 24/7 access to your online classroom. Your discussion boards and learning content are available at all hours of the day and night.


Prioritise your week

Studying with Swinburne Online allows you to fit your learning around your week, so you don’t have to put your life on hold for education. Design a weekly schedule that prioritises your family, work and personal commitments, and study when it suits you.


Set your own pace

Unsure about what you can commit to? Study at a pace that suits you best with part-time options and the ability to increase your unit load as you go. You also have the opportunity to fast-track your studies by completing up to 12 units per year.


Three teaching periods

With three intakes per year, you can choose which time of year you want to start studying or take a teaching period off when it coincides with an important project or trip. Swinburne Online offers intakes in March, July and November.
