How much will it cost?
Your Open University qualification will be made up of a series of modules. Every module has a fee and added together, they give you the total cost of the qualification. You'll pay for each module separately, rather than paying for the whole qualification in advance.
Our fee for a standard 30-credit module is £1,464, and for a standard 60-credit module it's £2,928*. Most of our students study 60 credits per year over six years for an honours degree.
Our costs are transparent so you know what's expected from the outset of your studies. Study materials, tuition and assessment and exams are all included in our fees. See additional costs for other expenses you may need to plan for.
Paying for your fees
You'll pay for your study when you register for each module, with a tuition fee loan, a credit or debit card or via bank transfer.
Everything about studying with us is flexible including payment options. More than 60% of students studying with us in England take out a tuition fee loan to pay for their studies. Alternatively, you could pay for your studies in instalments, spreading the cost to 'pay as you go'.
There are other ways you could pay for your studies too: if you work, you might be able to secure funding from your employer.
