Making university an option for everyone

The Open University

At the Open University, we help people change their lives through learning, every day. Regardless of age, background or previous qualifications, we help people reach their potential.

We understand that study needs to fit around the demands of daily life, such as working or finding a job or settling in to new routines when leaving care. We’re the experts in part-time study – and with our method of ‘supported open learning’ our students are never on their own.

From Access modules which provide high quality and affordable entry into higher education through to undergraduate degrees and postgraduate study, there really is something for everyone.

And for those who aren’t sure whether they’re ready for study, we even have an extensive range of free taster courses.
