Career Commitment T&C's
This commitment enables Open Colleges students who do not achieve the objective specified during their enrolment (e.g. Enter the workforce, career change, promotion, learning new skills/hobby) within 6 months of completing their course, to receive a second Open Colleges course or module selected by Open Colleges of equal or lesser value for no additional course fee (the Commitment Course), in order to assist the student to gain additional training necessary to achieve their specified outcome.
The conditions of the commitment are:
The Commitment only applies to online courses offered by Open Colleges
The Commitment does not apply to face-to-face courses offered by the School of Health
It only applies to Australian domestic students.
The student must have successfully completed or graduated from their initial course within the maximum course duration
The commitment will only apply if the student has paid their course fees in full
If course pre-requisites and/or eligibility criteria apply for the Commitment Course, the student must meet these conditions to be enrolled in the Commitment Course
The commitment will only apply if the student has made reasonable efforts to achieve their specified objective during their course and within the 6 months’ post course completion. Open Colleges will assess and determine whether the student has made reasonable efforts based on evidence of effort provided by the student. Examples of this include:
Proof of job applications in an industry related to their course of study
Proof of applications within the same employer for promotion or other jobs related to their course of study
Students that enrol as a hobbyist will need to let us know what skills were not learned in their course (to help us close the skill gap)
To accept the commitment, the student must contact Open Colleges within 6 months after the date which is 6 months after completion date of the initial course, after which the commitment expires.
The commitment applies to any course of equal or lesser value. If the second course is more expensive the student will need to pay the difference in the course fees.
The offer is limited to one Commitment Course
The commitment is non-transferrable
The commitment is only valid for new enrolments after (July 3rd, 2017).
Open Colleges reserves the right to cease to offer the commitment at any time without notice, provided that the commitment will remain in place for any student enrolled prior to the commitment offer being cancelled.
