Students have the flexibility to study in their own homes, as long as all study requirements are met within six years. As well as using printed course materials, the programme is online and web supported.
Students also receive individualised tuition from a national network of regional lecturers, who are easily accessible by freephone and email.

It is highly recommended that students volunteer or work in an early childhood centre during their programme of study and have access to the internet for course pages and submission of assessments.

I completed a Bachelor of ECE Teaching upgrade with Open Polytechnic in May this year. I found the program well resourced, current and relevant. When I had questions the online tutors answered them promptly and efficiently. I would definitely recommend to others. Administration staff were also efficient and helpful and online website easy to use. (Antonia Mountfort 2014-11-17)
