About Us

Opening opportunities.
Changing lives.

Since 1910, Open Colleges has been helping people from all walks of life to launch, change or accelerate their careers. Over this time, we have been at the forefront of distance and online learning in Australia.

Over the last 100 years, we have enrolled more than 700,000 students. As innovators and market leaders, we are setting new standards in terms of quality, innovation and student support in online learning.

We focus on meeting the specific needs of adult learners by delivering highly flexible, accessible and affordable learning opportunities. Our unique learning model provides our learners with ultimate control – to study anywhere, anytime and at their own pace. Our online campus – OpenSpace – provides leaners with 24/7 access to learning resources, expert trainers and assessors, collaboration with other learners and a comprehensive range of support services.

At Open Colleges, we put our students at the centre of everything that we do. We measure our success in the success of our students.

Today, we deliver over 150 vocational and professional courses spanning diverse disciplines and industries. We are Australia’s largest, leading private distance education provider. Through our various colleges, partner organisations and TAFE partnership we offer an extensive range of nationally recognised and government approved qualifications.

With unprecedented take-up of online learning in Australia, we have an exciting future and will continue to be the pioneer in open learning in Australia.
