Introduction to online learning

Interested in embarking on an online study journey?

 Flexible study

Swinburne Online course consultants explain the flexibility that our online classroom provides. They take you through:

  • How the teaching year is structured
  • Study loads
  • Course applications and intakes.

Develop your skills for success

If you have not studied recently, you might like to brush up your research, writing and critical thinking skills for better academic outcomes. The elective unit Academic Skills for Success can be studied with any bachelor’s degree and will set you on the right path.

We know students are most successful when they learn actively. This means not just remembering new information, but evaluating it and using it to solve problems and to come up with new ideas. Students at Swinburne Online learn with the three learning components: theory, practice and sharing. You learn your theory through the free Learning Materials, put it into practice with weekly Learning Activities and then share your learnings with other classmates in the Discussion Boards.
When completing your degree, there is a vast amount of technical support at your disposal, both on our website and through our support team. If you can’t find what you need on our Student Portal Technical Support section then get in touch with one of our Student Advisors on 1300 937 765 from Australia, +61 3 9956 0777 for Australian citizens living overseas and 800 8001 1222 for international students, anytime between 9am–9pm (AEST) Monday to Friday and 10am–6pm (AEST) on weekends and public holidays.
For students studying a degree, a virtual classroom is the online space where your learning will take place. You’ll participate in interactive learning activities, access online reading, watch instructional videos and interact with your fellow students. Plus, class sizes are kept small so you get the personalised support you need.
