The Open University is Northern Ireland’s most popular university as rated by our students. 89% of our students in 2017 were satisfied with their course and rated The Open University the top university for student satisfaction in Northern Ireland for the last 14 years!
While our courses are delivered online, students do not feel like they are distance learners. We are proud of the strong network of support that we provide to our students. We have a network of local staff, based in our Belfast office, that tutor and support our local students.
You can study with us from the start of your qualification, transfer credit from a degree that you started but didn’t finish, or complete a full undergraduate degree from the foundation degree, HND or HNC that you completed at a further education college.
