YASS - The Open University

YASS is offered in Scotland

YASS gives students in S6 the opportunity to study at  higher education level without leaving friends and family behind. Study fits around school work and social lives, encourages independent learning and builds confidence.

YASS is designed to bridge the gap between school and full-time university and help able and motivated students stand out from the crowd.

YASS in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

YASS is no longer offered as a formal scheme in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 
We are pleased to say, however, that it is still possible for schools in those three nations to register groups of students as before on a wide selection of OU modules. Further details are available here.

The Open University takes the safeguarding of its under 18 students very seriously and has a Safeguarding Policy.   If you are a parent/guardian or carer, you will be asked to read and sign the Safety Guidelines that we provide as part of our registration package.
