OUA Students

OUA lets you study UNDA programs and courses entirely online. The programs and courses are the same as those delivered to on-campus students.

Application and Enrolment

All application and enrolment functions are managed via the OUA website.

As an OUA student, you’ll receive your letter of offer and all enrolment confirmations from OUA.

If you need to re-enrol, make changes to your enrolment (e.g., withdrawal, change of course or program, etc.) you need to do so via the OUA website.

If you have any questions regarding OUA application and enrolment, please click the below box to get in touch with an OUA advisor.

OUA Contact

Learning, Teaching & Support

Once your application and enrolment is finalised, UNDA will contact you with your login details and your UNDA email address details.

UNDA will be in touch from time to time regarding relevant academic information so make sure you keep an eye on your UNDA email—preferably forwarding email from this address to your private email so you do not miss anything. Please ensure any correspondence with the University is from your Notre Dame Student email address only.

Once your results are finalised, these will be uploaded to Blackboard for you to access directly. We will supply OUA with grades to post on their website too.

Special Consideration & Special Circumstances

We understand that sometimes life events prevent you from achieving your study goals. You may apply for special consideration directly with UNDA on grounds that may include, but are not limited to;

  • illness, disability, impairment or incapacitation
  • misadventure
  • compassionate grounds
  • trauma
  • compulsory community commitment

The Procedure: Special Consideration is a useful guide to understand the process and possible outcomes of an application for special consideration. Special consideration may be granted by UNDA in cases where the circumstance has adversely affected your ability to:

  • complete a piece of assessment (including an examination)
  • attend an examination, except final invigilated exam
  • attend scheduled classes or learning experiences for a particular course where attendance is prescribed
  • attend a compulsory requirement of a course such as practicum, internship, or clinical placement in part, or in full

Special consideration will not normally be considered in circumstances where the application for special consideration and supporting evidence are received outside the required timeframe.

Special Circumstances

If exceptional circumstances beyond your control impact your ability to study after the Census date has passed and you have had to withdraw from your course(s) before completion, you can consider applying for special circumstances directly with OUA in order to seek a refund of your fees.

If those same circumstances make it impossible for you to withdraw from your course(s) prior to the Academic Penalty Date,  you may also consider requesting that the resulting Academic Penalty is removed by submitting an application for Retroactive Withdrawal (without Academic Penalty) to your School at Notre Dame.


The University provides Students with the right to appeal other administrative or academic decisions made against them, if they believe they have grounds to show the University’s regulations, policies and procedures were not considered in making that decision. Students are encouraged to discuss the disputed decision with their Course Coordinator, Program Coordinator or National Head of School in the first instance. More information on the appeals process is available at Show Cause, Student Appeals and Grievances.
