UNE is leading the way in making studying by distance easier and more fulfilling through innovative use of online tools. We are constantly improving online access and support for students.
There are a number of systems we have in place to make accessing everything you need to study very easy via the internet. We strongly advise all students to have broadband access to the internet to enable full use of the services we offer.
We also do our best to support and facilitate communication between students and staff online with discussion boards and multiple email lists for the distribution of information through the university community.
