Study with us
Our curriculum ranges from short introductory courses (such as Understanding health) to Masters degrees and professional qualifications in nursing and social work.
You can study many of our courses for personal enjoyment, while others are designed to build towards academic awards such as diplomas or degrees. Many of our courses and qualifications can also help you take your first steps into caring work, build on your knowledge and practice, develop specialist skills and understanding, and progress your career in your chosen field.
See how OU study has transformed the lives and careers of some of our students:
