We work with world leaders who specialise in the delivery of distance learning programs, Universities that have developed distinct expertise and experience in successfully satisfying the educational demands of distance learning students.
To effectively deliver courses at a distance, it is essential that the University and the courses themselves actually support your learning efforts. The quality of the materials, support services and communication channels play a significant role in creating a successful and more rewarding learning experience.
Using this criteria, we hand select our University partners.

The Open University
The Open University's mission is to be open to people, places, methods and ideas.
We promote educational opportunity and social justice by providing high-quality university education to all who wish to realise their ambitions and fulfil their potential.
Through academic research, pedagogic innovation and collaborative partnership we seek to be a world leader in the design, content and delivery of supported open learning.
Supported open learning - The OU teaches through its own unique method of distance learning, called "supported open learning", which is:
. Flexible: students work where and when they choose to fit in with jobs, families and other commitments
. All inclusive: students get all the high quality materials they need to study
. Supportive: personal tutors provide academic expertise, guidance and feedback and run group tutorials; and specialist advisers are on hand to help with other aspects of OU study
. Social: students get together at tutorials, day schools and informal study groups; and through online conferencing, study networks and course forums.
The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) has judged that The Open University's academic standards, the quality and enhancement of its student learning opportunities, and the quality of information about its learning opportunities all meet UK expectations.
Course production - Our modules are developed by multi-disciplinary course teams comprising:
. Academics, educational technologists and media specialists contributing pedagogic and technical expertise
. Respected academics from other universities working alongside OU colleagues
. External examiners.
This model has helped to build the University's reputation for innovation, rigour and quality and has been adopted by distance teaching institutions worldwide.
The OU has a network of more than 5,000 tutors. Tutors mark assignments, provide detailed written feedback, and offer support to students by telephone, email, or computer conferencing. They also run group or online tutorials. Some are full-time members of staff, but most are associate lecturers: experts in their subject who combine their work as tutors with other academic or industry jobs.
