OU Modules

The OU offers around 600 modules which can count towards more than 250 qualifications. You can find the full module description at Welcome to The Open University.

Each module has a module person specification which sets out the requirements needed to tutor an individual module. The module person specification also tells you which salary band you would be paid, how many students would be in your student group and other useful information.

The module person specification is included in the Module details document for an individual module vacancy. If the module does not have a current vacancy you can find the module person specifications for all modules by going to the appropriate faculty area.

Click on the Module person specifications link in the blue box on the right. Then click on the appropriate Faculty to open the Faculty page and at the bottom of each page there is a Specifications link which expands to show the module person specifications.

If you cannot find the person specification for a module that you are looking for then it may be because the module is not supported by a tutor or that the module is no longer being offered.
