The Open College was founded to offer courses on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ) to the general public by Distance Learning, eLearning & Attendance Learning and to provide these courses at affordable prices.
We are recognised as Ireland’s leading dedicated provider of QQI / FETAC award courses and this recognition is based on the quality of our course materials, the professionalism of our tutors and the exceptional value for money we offer which is why we always ask – ‘why pay more for the same course?’.
The Open College is also one of only seven Private Education Providers in Ireland that secure all fees paid by students and guarantee that all fees are fully bonded and protected for courses of over 3 months duration.
