Quality Online Learning

Good Universities Guide - Overall Experience

UNE has been an innovator of flexible study for over 60 years because we’re committed to helping busy adults study and succeed. Online learning at UNE is about flexibility and support that can only be provided by a university that has long understood the challenges faced by people balancing study with a busy life.

Not all online learning is created equal.

For the 12th year in a row, the University of New England has earned a five-star rating from the Good Universities Guide for the quality of our student experience. The 2018 Guide also awarded UNE five-star ratings in six other important categories, including Teaching Quality, Student Support, Graduate Employment and Median Graduate Salary.

This is learning that you can access anywhere, anytime, that is convenient for you. We can help you to balance your busy life, and boost your career.
