    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.

    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.

    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.

    Unsolicited call

    Caller: Open Uni Aus

    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!!

    Open Uni cold calling after I looked at info on the website and entered my number. Didn't ask to be called. If I need further info will call them directly.

    Call them and tell them to take you off the list for calls if you're not ready to speak to them. I did this and they removed my name straight away.

    I was getting missed from this no. from the 8th of August 2018, BEFORE I'd even looked at Open University.
    Needless to say, I don't answer these calls. And never will. Plus I will never give Open Uni the time of day again. Watch Youtube and look up "scammers getting owned", and rejoice in the fact that its only a matter of time before they're called out and held accountable as more and more people with I.T skills are making a point of flushing scams out. I really hope that people are not getting money ripped off of them.

    when you enter your number at the website they call you back. if you don't want this then don't leave your number.
