Flexibility to study your way

At CDU you don't need to sacrifice work or family life to study.

Our online learning options offer the flexibility of studying when it suits you so that you can balance study commitments with a career, family and social life.

Increasingly popular with adult learners, studying externally at CDU allows you to learn at your own pace through our supportive and informative virtual classrooms.

There is a range of study options such as part-time, and you can even spread your study load over three semesters a year in some courses.

Additional information

  • Although studying online, some courses may require you to complete professional placements, clinical placements or residential blocks on campus.

    Sometimes these placements can be completed locally, but for clinical placements and residential blocks, you may need to travel to one of our campuses or centres.

    Find out more about professional placements from your college.

  • If you need to visit one of campuses or centres for a short period to complete a clinical placement, residential block or trade block, our Accommodation Services team can advise you of your accommodation options.

  • Just because you are studying online, doesn't mean you can't take advantage of campus services and facilities.

    If you live near one of our campuses or centres, or if you are visiting campus for a short period, you'll have the full range of CDU services and facilities at your fingertips.

    Some of these include:

    • cafes and dining options
    • a range of accommodation options
    • sports facilities, such as tennis courts and covered basketball courts
    • gardens and green open spaces
    • a well-equipped library, with computers and plenty of books and DVDs for hire
