Cambridge Open College

CAMBRIDGE OPEN COLLEGE

Cambridge Open College has been providing distance learning, home study, open learning and correspondence courses since 2006.

The College’s founders have more than 25 years combined expertise in education generally, and distance learning (also known as home study) in particular. Few distance-learning establishments have more experience at a “hands on” level; we’ve all been tutors and assessors in the sector for many years.

Heavy investment in state-of-the-art technology has typified the College’s development, particularly in its more recent history. Our systems are second to none, and make your learning experience as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible.

The College provides more than 120 courses across 5 faculties, successful completion of which result in nationally recognised qualifications listed on the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF), or certification for specialist bespoke (unregulated) qualifications. Most are endorsed or accredited by some of the UK’s most prolific Awarding Organisations.

The college’s students come from all walks of life, and undertake the courses for a wide range of reasons, including career enhancement, continuous professional development (CPD), and studying purely for fun to expand their existing knowledge of a hobby or stimulating subject.

We exist because of our students. You are the most important resource we have. If you want to study a course we don’t currently have, let us know. We are always looking for more to satisfy our growing alumni.

If you notice anything on the website, in your course materials or in any of your interaction with us that is not satisfactory in any way, then please tell us. We want your learning journey to be as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible.
