a new direction and an improved way to learn.

At Open Colleges, we’re always looking for ways to improve your learning experience, to give you the best chance to succeed and get the most out of your course. That means providing you with the right support at the right time, high-quality learning materials and an online learning platform that meets your needs.

We have recently been working on making some exciting enhancements to our learning platform, OpenSpace, which we will be launching to all courses progressively over the coming months, on a course-by-course basis. Once you’ve enrolled, we’ll notify you before your course will be moved over – you don’t need to do anything!
