Happy 12th Birthday to Open Study College!

It's our birthday! Open Study College is 12 years old today...something definitely worth celebrating.
Open Study College was the brainchild of our Chairman Mark Rutter. Whilst working in the distance learning sector, Mark recognised a need for high quality flexible learning that was accessible to all. With Mark's belief that everyone is entitled to an education, setting up a distance learning organisation was the ideal method to bring studying to people of all ages, genders and abilities.
Today over [past_students_count] students have enrolled with us on courses from A to Z - literally! We have over 550 courses on our website, from accounting through to zoology, and everything in between. We offer a broad mix of knowledge based courses for additional learning, through to widely recognised GCSE and A Level qualifications and industry specialisms like CACHE, ICB, ACCA and CIMA to name but a few.
Both our CEO Samantha Rutter and Open Study College have won multiple business and service provider awards over the years; cementing our dedication to providing the best experience for our students.
