Open2Study no longer offers free courses. The site now only offers paid Accredited online courses available via Open Universities Australia.


Open2Study is an initiative of Open Universities Australia which itself is an Australian leader in accredited online education through collaboration of several Australian universities. The site offers both free and accredited courses. The free courses focus on concrete career skills rather than core academic subjects and are sourced from the Australian universities involved with the Open Universities consortium but also from corporate partners. The courses follow a 4-week format using videos, further readings, assessments, quizzes & transcripts and are designed to give you an idea of a particular subject area, to refresh your knowledge or to fulfill a curiosity you’ve been carrying around for a while.
The accredited courses, available through Open Universities Australia, cover both university and vocational study and offer associate, bachelor and master degree programs.
