Hello!

You might think it daunting to undertake the task of studying at home, but with the range of online courses available these days, study at home for mums is tangible – and desirable. Online study is a great option for mums at home and on-the-go because it offers flexibility and complete control over where, when and how you want to learn. Plus, with the diverse range of compelling courses on offer, you’ll be itching to get your learning cap on. Here’s the lowdown on what you can expect from undertaking an online course at the Australian Institute of Applied Sciences (AIAS).

What is online learning?

Online learning at AIAS allows you to study anywhere you can connect to the internet at a time convenient to you as opposed to attending a campus. Online Learning involves electronically supported learning and teaching methods through our Study Smart system. You’ll be guided through your studies with an interactive and web-based educational experience.

What can you study?

There are a great range of courses on offer at AIAS across Beauty Therapy, Massage Therapy, Fitness and Natural Medicine. You could complete a course in:

–          Aromatherapy

–          Naturopathy

–          Remedial Massage

–          Nail Technology

–          Fitness & Allied Health

–          Western Herbal Medicine

If you’re more interested in Business & Management, Graphic Design, Travel and IT courses, you have a wide variety of options at Martin College as well.

Who is online learning suited to?

As a busy mum, you will more than likely have demands on your time that you can’t spare for attending classes, which makes online learning perfect for you. Plus, if you are the kind of person who doesn’t need a structured classroom setting to feel motivated, it’s a great option too.

What about assignments?

All subject assessment tasks are submitted online, so all you need is access to a computer and the internet!

How do you get started?

Online Learning Support will confirm with you that you have received all the online course materials. They also access to first subjects on Study Smart, Live Chat, Student Forums, Student webmail and various other communication technologies

How do I get support?

The courses are covered by the same support services as classroom study. Each subject has a dedicated online facilitator who is an expert in that subject’s field of study. You can contact them through email, instant messaging, phone and forums.

  • My daughter is studying nursing online at the moment. She attends Uni one day a week and the rest is done online. A great way to do it as she can work around it. It’s working well for her, you do need to be dedicated tho and a study buddy or 2 comes in handy too

  • If you think AIAS is an option think again. Speaking from experience I was enrolled to study online the Aromatherapy diploma and cert 4 bundle. Was not able to speak to anyone. Didn\’t get inducted and am STILL going through legal disputes to get my money back. WORDS OF ADVICE TO ALL LADIES PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF THE HASSLE AND DO NOT ENROL WITH THESE NON AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE!!!! They can hardly speak English. Enrolment was pushed so quickly to get my money now they won\’t even respond to me. The director. The complaints and appeals panel. No one. I have had to take legal action.

  • I studied a post-grad course online during pregnancy/looking after small children and it was fantastic – kept me sane, and I wouldn’t have been able to manage if I had to travel to classes at set times.

  • Love the idea of studying online. Attending a classroom was great when I had lots of time, and I enjoyed making new friends who were interested in the same thing. Just now though I wouldn’t be happy with all the travel etc and would really enjoy studying at home.
