I found the online learning experience to be excellent. If ever I needed help in understanding an assignment, I just emailed the trainer who always replied very quickly.

Student support is at the heart of everything we do. You can access our online campus – Open Space – at any time, and connect with other students and expert trainers and assessors for support and advice. Our friendly student support team is also just a phone call away to provide you with academic advice, assistance with enrolment, or help with finding a work placement.


Making the decision to study is a significant investment. We assist you with making that decision by giving you the option to pay in weekly, fortnightly or monthly installments, meaning that you don’t have to come up with a large portion of payment upfront. However, if you do choose to pay upfront, significant savings can be a benefit.


We recognise that you have a busy lifestyle and are time constrained. That’s why we do everything possible to ensure flexibility for our learners. Your course starts whenever you are ready, and you progress at your own pace. There's no fixed lectures or scheduled exams, and you have access to all learning materials and support at all times.


We understand that you demand the highest quality in your education, that's why most of our qualifications are nationally recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework. All of our courses are designed and delivered by industry experts. Open Colleges has also partnered with North Coast TAFE to offer the most innovative TAFE courses to enhance your future career prospects.
