A portrait image of the testimonial author

Online learning with Curtin University has been fantastic because I’m still able to work full-time and chip away at my master degree in my own time. The ability to communicate with my course supervisors and other students is also easily accessible. I feel like I’ve got the best of both worlds.

Rachael Ryan, Master of Sustainability and Climate Policy

It was a huge advantage for me to be able to study part-time and online, so I could continue my full-time job in Brisbane.

Tara Curtin online student

The best thing about studying online is the flexibility for sure. I can study anywhere, and at anytime. Living in Hedland means the only university options are in Perth, and my family are happy here. The ability to do my degree online is something I’ll be grateful for forever, as without online study I simply couldn’t do the degree.
