Study Online

Sometimes it’s tricky to fit study around your lifestyle and commitments.

Fortunately, we have a solution. We’re pleased to be able to offer a range of study options that you can study fully online, when and where you please. That means you can study even if you're working full-time, you have other commitments, or if you don’t live near an Ara campus.

Our fully online study options are delivered through eCampus NZ.

Here’s how it works: first you decide which of the Ara qualifications (listed below) you want to study. Then you enrol through eCampus and become an Ara student with all the usual Ara student support, resources and benefits. Your course content will come to you via eCampus and you choose when and where you study. Once you’ve successfully completed your course, you’ll graduate with an Ara qualification that’s equal in merit to those studied on campus.
