Build new skills and enhance your personal and professional development through our Open Learning Environment (OLE).
The Open Learning Environment (OLE) is a collection of units that offers you the opportunity to extend your skills and knowledge by exploring other fields of study. You can learn about a diverse range of topics such as global cultures, entrepreneurial thinking, coding, ethics, design thinking, and project management.
Units in the OLE are either two or six credit points. These short units are completely online and can be completed at your own convenience. There are also units designed specifically for HDR students.
Depending on your degree, you may be required to complete credit point OLE units.
Depending on your course, you may need to take credit point OLE units to meet your degree requirements. This will be outlined in your handbook.
The credit point OLE units available are listed in Table O in the Interdisciplinary Studies Handbook.
You'll need to enrol in these units through Sydney Student during the enrolment period for your course.
In-Country Experience OLE units
If you find your handbook requires you to complete OLE units, you may choose to complete one of the School of Languages and Cultures’ In-Country Experiences.
Read important information on the application process, departmental permission, and additional fees associated with these units.
You’ll need to apply for these units through the Global Mobility Database once applications open each semester.
