|Open Universities Australia|
Open Universities Australia (OUA) (previously Open Learning Australia (OLA)) is an Australian open distance education organisation. The majority of students are based in Australia, however the courses are available to the rest of the world. Undergraduate courses offered have no first year entry requirements, and there are no quotas for most courses, hence the 'open' aspect.
Open Universities Australia is owned by seven universities.
The organisation is a consortium of several Australian universities and colleges, seven of whom own it, with courses being taught through each individual university or college.
