Online Learning Courses – Why us?

Online learning Courses are now seen as the ideal way of learning a new subject. Whether you are studying for a career, a promotion or purely a general interest, distance learning fits nicely to even the busiest routines.

The process of online learning could not be simpler. Once you have found the online course you would like to study simply process your details and pay online or by calling our office on 0121 792 3872. Once we receive your details, you will receive your course access within 24 hours via email.

Students can then commence their studies to suit their circumstances. Most courses contain a series of assignments to test your knowledge. This gives our tutors the opportunity to assess your progress step by step. All assignments will be graded, and a report is issued containing any suggestions for improvement as and when required.

Why choose Online Learning Courses from UK Open College?


Attending college is no longer the preferred study option for many students. The flexibility that online learning brings allows even the busiest of students to learn a new skill.

Students can study from home as much or as little as they want at a pace which suits them personally. Every student’s commitments and circumstances are different which makes home learning the ideal solution.

Students can enrol at any time of the year and not have to worry about enrolling ready to commence at the start of the academic year. There are no set term times or any deadlines to meet. You can enroll whenever you feel ready. There is no pressure at all.

Entry requirements 

Most of our online learning courses require no previous skills or knowledge to enrol. You do not have to complete an entrance exam or have previous qualifications. This makes learning accessible to all.

Over 70% of our students have not studied since leaving school and by their own admission feel apprehensive and admit confidence is low. You really can study whatever your background or circumstances.

The average age of our students is 36. Our oldest student was 74. It is a myth that you have to be between 16-18 years of age to commence a study programme.


We believe we have one of the largest selections of online learning courses available and are continually looking to add courses we feel will be of value to existing and potential students.

We currently have over 300 online courses to choose from, the majority leading to fully recognised awards and qualifications.


Our online courses are available to students all over the world, enrolment is available to all and it is not necessary to be a UK resident. Almost 20% of our students are studying from outside the UK. As long as you have Internet access then there really is no barrier.

Learn while you earn 

A major advantage to home learning is the flexibility of being able to study around your work and family commitments. Many students who have expressed an interest in learning through their local college found the constraints and starting dates difficult to manage. Combined with the difficult task of taking time off work or arranging travel and childcare they are unable to attend their course. Online learning courses eliminate all of these problems. Carry on earning while you are learning.

Unlimited support 

It is important that our students have support and guidance throughout their studies. All of our online courses come with unlimited email & telephone. No matter how small the problem is we recognise that students like need to be able to ask questions as and when necessary. Students are never alone own when they choose the UK Open College as their learning provider.
