Study online in 2021

8 Dec 2020

From next year, USC will offer a range of degrees online to allow greater flexibility and study opportunities for those previously unable to attend university due to work or family commitments.

New students will have the option to choose from a range of programs including Arts, Business, Communications, Creative Industries, Criminology, Design and IT.

Unlike traditional distance education in which you usually don’t get to know the staff or each other, USC will focus on using interactive technology to connect and learn, whether on campus, in your home or in your workplace.

If you choose to study online, you’ll still have access to a wide range of student services and facilities at your local campus, including the support you need to fit study in with work and life.

If you’re thinking about a new career, you can get started with an online degree and have the flexibility to study in the way that suits you. It’s not too late to apply to start your study journey next year.
