Fantastic! Enrolling myself in the Diploma and heading down the online path was daunting at first, especially juggling work and kids, but I was pleasantly surprised how user friendly the whole course has been. The course content is easy to follow and manage. You do need good time management and motivation to stay on track, however the student support has been fantastic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are your courses self-paced?

icon

Yes, they are! With Open Colleges, you’re in charge. There are no exams, or set timetables, so you can learn at your own pace. This means that if you have the time, you can dedicate more hours a week to studying and finish your course earlier. Or you can choose to study without pressure over a longer period of time.

Are your courses free?

icon

Unlike a TAFE, which is government owned, Open Colleges is a privately owned RTO (Registered Training Organisation.) This means that we are an independent entity, and we don’t receive any government funding. For this reason, our courses are not free. If you have any questions about our pricing, please feel free to contact our friendly Enrolment Consultants.

Are your courses nationally recognised?

icon

Yes, they are! Open Colleges offers nationally recognised Certificates and Diplomas under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). This means that our Certificates and Diplomas meet specific national standards and have been developed in consultation with industry experts to provide the most workplace relevant training. Qualifications from Open Colleges also carry the same level of recognition as courses delivered on-campus in a classroom setting. So, when you study with OC, you can rest assured that you are receiving quality education.
