About Us

Open Colleges has been delivering quality education for over 100 years. During this time, we have honed our unique learning model to become Australia’s leader in online learning. We’ve achieved this by continuously evolving our approach to meet the needs of our learners by offering flexible, accessible, affordable and supportive courses.

So far, we’ve have helped over 700,000 people gain the skills to launch, change or take the next step in their careers.

All of us at Open Colleges put the student at the centre of everything we do, whether that’s helping you find the right course, designing a new course, making improvements to our online campus or giving you the support you need to reach your goals.

A unique learning experience

When you study online with Open Colleges you’re in control. You can choose to complete your course quickly or keep to a steady pace, and with no deadlines or schedules to stick to, fitting your learning around your everyday commitments is easy.

Everything you need to study is online so you can study wherever you like – but that doesn’t mean you’re on your own. OpenSpace is our purpose-built online learning platform. It’s where you’ll go to access to your learning materials, contact your expert trainers and assessors, upload your assessments and find all the support and motivation you need to keep going from the OC community.

Learn from the best

In June 2012, Open Colleges established a unique partnership with North Coast TAFE, an Institute of TAFE NSW, to collaborate on the development and delivery of Nationally Recognised Training online. We have also established strong partnerships with leading industry bodies, such as Early Childhood Australia and The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers.

December 2013 saw Open Colleges Australia (the holding company of Open Colleges Pty Ltd) become part of Apollo Education Group, Inc. Being part of Apollo gives Open Colleges access to the expertise, experience and educational resources of the University of Phoenix (USA), Institute of Professional Development (USA), BPP University (UK) and other institutions in the Apollo global network.

Our ongoing partnerships and place within the Apollo family ensure we continue to deliver a student experience that’s best in class.
