How to get your child enrolled online at a Sydney university
A new technology that allows families to easily get online classes at university is gaining traction in Sydney.
Students at the University of Sydney’s school of law and medicine can access a variety of online courses, including those offered by universities in the US, Australia and the UK.
The new technology, called Online Education Services (OES), lets students take online classes without having to go to the classroom.
It is currently available to students in the law and social sciences.
Students can use the OES application to access courses at schools, colleges and universities in Australia, the US and UK.
But for the past two years, OES has been available at universities across the country, including the University, University of New South Wales, University at Albany and the University at Hobart.
The application was launched by the University and is available for the undergraduate, graduate and professional education programs.
“There’s no barrier to accessing online education anywhere in Australia,” Professor Peter Coyle, an Associate Professor in the School of Law and Humanities at the Australian National University, said.
“This is something that we hope will help students across Australia.”
Professor Coyle said the OHS software was developed by a group of lawyers and researchers from around the world.
“The goal is to make it easy for students to access education wherever they go,” he said.
The software allows students to view a wide range of online classes including those available at the Universities of Sydney and the NSW School of Medicine and Dentistry.
For students with an Australian Student Visa, the program will allow them to take online courses.
Professor Coyne said that while the OVS was available to everyone, he expected that students would prefer to use the software when there was a significant change in the curriculum.
“You can expect that students will have a choice, because it’s a free program,” he told ABC Radio.
“They’ll go where they want to go, whatever their level is.”
Professor Rohan Walshe, the Associate Dean of Students and Lecturer in the University’s School of Legal and Health Sciences, said the program had already proved to be a success.
“Students have been using it to take courses in the Law School, and they have taken online classes in the Faculty of Health Sciences,” he explained.
“So we’ve been seeing a steady increase in usage over the past couple of years.”
The software has a range of features including support for the University Students, Faculty of Law, School of Dentistry and Faculty of Social Sciences.
“We think this is going to be hugely beneficial for all of us,” Professor Walsher said.
Students will be able to take the online courses from the University website, from other universities, from private providers and from the local community.
“What we’re really trying to do is build on that success,” he added.
“It’s a very exciting time for law and human resources, so we’re going to use that as our opportunity to make the software even better.”
The program is available in the UWS, the University Student Union of Australia, and the Student Health Society.
Professor Wanshe said the students who use the program would benefit from the flexibility and affordability of the online education.
“With the amount of students coming through our school, we need to be able [to] meet them in person,” he warned.
“If they want an online course that’s more than 30 minutes in duration, we’d be happy to offer it to them.”
Professor Winshe said there were some concerns about the quality of the content, but he believed the software was designed with students in mind.
“I’m really excited about this,” he acknowledged.
“Law and human services students can now have access to a range to online courses with all the support and education that we have to offer.”
The students can also access OES courses through the University Faculty of Science, Education and Technology’s student services website.
A number of other universities and colleges around the country are also using the program, including Melbourne University, the Monash University, and Deakin University.
The online OES software is currently in beta, with students who are enrolled can access the software via the OBS website.
“At the moment, there’s a couple of issues that are being worked on,” Professor Coysne said.
He said that students could still sign up for courses through OES.
“For students with Australian Student Visas who want to take a course in Australia and for people who are in the Australian Student visas program who want an English course, we can get you to go,” Professor Sall said.
