Why study online with Open Colleges?

Deciding to study online can bring up a whole range of emotions – excitement, pride and maybe a little apprehension – but don’t worry. With Open Colleges, you’ll have the all the flexibility and support you need to get through your course and create a new future.

Find out more about the benefits of studying online with us below, discover more about how online learning works, or simply go ahead and get started.

We know your time is precious. When you study online with Open Colleges there are no strict schedules and no assessment due dates so you really can study around your life. You can also start your course any day of the year – we’re ready when you are.

You’re in charge – you’re free to study whenever and wherever you like but, don’t worry, we’ll always be there to keep you on track. Whilst there are no set study hours per week, we’ll give you some study guidelines and regular encouragement to help you succeed in your course.

One of the major benefits of studying online is that you can learn at your own pace. If you have the ability and time to finish your course earlier, you can, or you can choose to learn without any pressure over a longer timeframe. It’s completely up to you.

Just because you’ve chosen to study online doesn’t mean you’ll be left completely on your own. As you’re in control of your studies, it will take a whole load of self-discipline and there could be times when you struggle to stay motivated but there will always be somebody there to give you a helping hand.

When you enrol with Open Colleges, you join a whole community where you can get help with everything from managing your studies to specific questions about your course and staying motivated. Whatever questions you have, real people are available to help. With Open Colleges, you’ll have access to 3 kinds of support:

  • Trainer Support – get the answers to questions about your course or assessments
  • Student Support – call us to get all the administration information you need, including course help and how to get started
  • Learner Support – we can help you with essay planning, study tips and so much more

You can also contact other students studying the same course as you to discuss assessments or even find a study buddy to help keep you motivated in your online campus – OpenSpace.

Money matters – and we know that the cost of studying online is a major factor to consider when making the decision to enrol in a course. We also know that you may be ready to study but might not be able to pay your full course fees upfront.

At Open Colleges, we believe education should be accessible to anyone that wants to learn, so we offer a range of payment options that mean getting qualified or following a passion doesn’t have to break the bank.

You have two payment options: 1) pay your fees upfront before you start your course, or 2) pay your fees through a quarterly payment plan.

When you study with Open Colleges, you'll receive the same quality of education that you would get on a college campus. Open Colleges International uses the Australian Qualifications Framework as the basis of all training which provides the job-ready skills you need to succeed.

Industry-developed courses

Here at Open Colleges, we develop our courses in consultation with industry experts to ensure the skills and knowledge you gain are applicable and in-demand. This means you not only complete your course with the career confidence to embrace new opportunities but also have a broader understanding of your industry of choice.
