How it works

Online study is delivered via our digital learning platform called Canvas.

Your student email account is used for most correspondence, e.g. exam information or unit updates from course coordinators and tutors.

If you're not too far from an hg8868皇冠 campus, you can also access campus facilities and learning support services.

If not, some support services can still be accessed online.

Hitting the books

Hitting the books

You can purchase text books, uniforms and name badges online from The School Locker.

Resources are also available to online students via the hg8868皇冠 Library.

Our library databases and online catalogue enable you to conduct research online.

And if you live more than 50km from an hg8868皇冠 campus, Library staff can provide you with copies of journal articles and books, including posting publications to your home address.

Doing exams

Hitting the books

You can register your attendance at one of our examination centre locations using 'SIMO', our Student Information Management Online system.

If you live further then 80km from an examination centre, you simply need to nominate someone to supervise your exams and you can do them at home.

SIMO is also your 'go to' place for enrolling in units, checking unit results and looking up exam timetables.


At hg8868皇冠 you can study online degrees, diplomas and even some doctorates.

Some of our courses are ideal for distance study as they're completely online.

Others, like Engineering or Paramedicine for example, have practical, hands-on units that require you to spend some time on-campus and/or on an industry-specific placement.

Theory-based units can be completed online to complement the ones you have to complete on-campus.

Your blank Canvas

Your lecturers currently use our Canvas system to teach your online units.

All units have a site on Canvas where you can access unit plans and materials, as well as your lecturer's contact details.

Here, you can submit assignments and view your marks for completed ones.

For an increasing number of units, you can also listen to recordings of the lectures – it's just like being there.

Canvas also features a discussion board, wiki, blogs, journals and ePortfolios.
