It's a sales division for open learning uni Hate the way they operate. Give people some time to think and digest information before calling. I am looking at buying an education, not a pizza. Looks very unprofessional. Only wanted information about courses and now they wont stop calling. me I am enrolled at Griffith, studying online through OUA. They called me to say that I can be admitted to the degree that I’ve now completed a few subjects toward. They’re very helpful, make sure it all happens the way you’re expecting it to. All legit! Open Uni. They get your number when you download a course guide, then make unsolicited calls. Not a good look. Caller: open university australia
i'm jus tryna find some info abt their courses i didn't sign up for some goddamn 24/7 call service smh. i downloaded course info yesterday and so far ive gotten 12 calls. it hasn't even been 24 hours yet.
I totally agree .... their persistent calls turn me off multiple calls, no message left Looks like you could use some extra education in the correct use and spelling of the English language... Caller: Open Uni
I really should've done my research before handing over my phone number. I ended up just blocking it. I just wanted to know what could do with courses. I didn't need to be spammed.

Guess next time I would just leave a trash number when downloading their info. Hate being chased this annoying way.

Rang to tell me that enrollments are closing soon (5 weeks from now???). I was like, ok cool. Then he asked for my full name and DOB so he could bring up my account. I just told him 'nah' cos I will apply online for the next term like I did for the first two. Thanked him for his call, even though it was pointless, I guess they still have me in their database as a cold-call client.
Guy was nice enough, I have contacted OUA on the phone before and they have excellent customer service. It sucks they have to cold-call
They're pushy sales tactics really make it feel like we're being 'sold' a uni degree, instead of carefully considering a major lifestyle change. It is a wonder that most people fail or drop out when studying online - they were pushed into something they weren't mentally ready for!!
