Frequently asked questions View all FAQs

  • Is an online qualification a real qualification?

    Yes, students of Swinburne Online graduate with the exact same qualification as a student at Swinburne University of Technology. Not only does your graduation certificate look exactly the same, your coursework will cover all the same topics – we just transpose the information and assessment tasks so that they are perfectly suited to an online classroom.

  • Do you offer online support, or will I need to figure it all out myself?

    We have a whole variety of support options available to students seven days a week, so no one is ever left feeling alone.
    For students studying a degree with us, your small online class of 20-24 students is run by a dedicated online tutor (eLearning Advisor), who will always be happy to respond to your questions. Our Student Advisors (SAs) are a team of academic/technical and administrative specialists who can be contacted seven days a week. They can help with issues from advice on assignments to problems with logging in to the Student Portal. We also have online assessment support options that will cater to a range of academic needs. To find out more about our university support options, visit the student support page on our website.
    For VET students, everything you need to know to complete your diploma is housed in our unique system called MyQuest. However, if you do find yourself with questions one of our VET student team are on hand.

  • How does your model of online study work for higher education if there are no lectures?

    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.
