How do I apply?

What are the steps I need to take to apply for an Online Learning course…

ATU applicants can apply directly to ATU Online & Flexible Learning by visiting the relevant course webpage and clicking on the ‘Apply Now‘ button if we’re open for applications during that time. If we are not open for applications when you visit a online course webpage, please ‘Register Your Interest‘ instead and we’ll let you know when that programme is open for application. Please download our ‘Application Guide‘ for further information on how to apply.

You will be requested to submit a CV and additional supporting documentation, qualifications and results for examination if relevant. We accept a variety of qualifications as part of your online learning application.

As part of your online learning application, we do consider applications from those with the skills and knowledge gained through life and work experience. This is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and if you’d like further information on RPL, please email

If you are interested in a Springboard+ funded course, please apply on the Springboard+ website –
