How It Works

Your Learning Journey – Start Here To Change Your Life…


A journey to anywhere starts with a single step. Your journey to success and achievement starts right here.


  1. Choose your course or qualification. As you can see we have a wide range of subjects you can study with us, across several faculties. Whatever you decide to choose, and wherever you want to get to, it’s here.


  1. Read the individual course information to be sure it satisfies all of your requirements. For example, if you want a nationally recognised qualification, make sure you choose one of our QCF courses. If you want to study purely for personal fulfilment or Continuing Professional Development (CPD), you may be happy with one of our endorsed programmes. These are non-regulated, and therefore don’t sit on the national framework.


  1. Decide how you want to pay for the course. We offer several methods, including low cost direct debit instalments that will help you manage the cost. This can make study with us more affordable than you might think. But you will also save money by paying in full when you order.


  1. Add your chosen course to the shopping basket and proceed through to check out, where you will be able to select your payment method and confirm the order.


  1. The order process will also register you as a Cambridge Open College Student. You will receive confirmation of your order by email, together with instructions and a login for the dedicated student portal.


Congratulations! That’s it – you’re on your way; your journey has begun.
