Macquarie University’s Bachelor of Arts degree offered through Open Universities Australia gives you the opportunity to study units from a wide range of disciplines in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
This degree offers considerable flexibility, allowing students to construct programs and tailor their education and training to meet their individual needs and interests. Subject units in this Macquarie University program are based on online and computer-based learning and teaching. Internet access is therefore essential.
There's plenty of support on offer for OUA students. Find out more.
Students can choose to major in one of the following:
Open Universities Australia offers a range of administrative and student support options. As a student of OUA you will have access to four hours of free expert tutoring support for each unit undertaken through the tutoring service SMARTHINKING. This on-demand service allows you to get fast, detailed feedback on your assignment drafts and gives you access to your tutor in real time.
The My OUA portal is an online student medium that allows you access to all your course and enrolment information as well as access to student forums and assessment tips.
This degree will develop your research, analytical, critical thinking and writing skills, as well as provide you with specific knowledge in individual subject areas. As a graduate, you can go on to pursue a wide range of careers in business, education, government and other sectors.
As just one example of how this degree can deliver immediate career options, the History and Politics stream meets the requirements of the NSW Department of Education and Training for high school teachers. For many students however, a Bachelor of Arts degree can represent a launching pad for future postgraduate studies and further specialisation.
If you are an Australian citizen you may be eligible to receive HECS-HELP or scholarships.
This course can be paid for through the HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP government loan scheme. If you are an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa, you may not need to pay upfront.
Instead, the Australian government will pay your course fees directly to the provider on your behalf. You'll begin repaying your loan through the tax system once you start earning more than the minimum threshold of $54,869 (2016-17 income year).
