How do I enrol on a course?

If you know the course you're interested in, simply use the course search bar on the right or look through our subject areas to find the course information page and enrol online. For example, if you want to do an accounting course, search 'accounting', select the course most appropriate for you to find out more and follow the link to get started with your online enrolment.

Please note that for some of our courses, a member of the course team will need to contact you to discuss the course requirements and suitability before the enrolment process can be completed.

How can I pay for my course?

When you enrol online you can:

•Pay online using a credit or debit card.
