What can I study?
Choose from a range of start dates to suit you
Open University modules can vary in their duration and can run once, twice or more frequently during the year. When you click on a module title below it takes you to the full module description; here you can see when the module starts next, the fee and assessment information. It’s important to check the closing dates for applications on each module, as they can vary. The method of delivery can also vary from course to course: for instance, some modules are entirely online, while others are not. Please make sure you select ‘Scotland’ from the drop down list in the module description to make sure you see the appropriate module fee for students in Scotland.
The modules offered through YASS are at SCQF level 7: equivalent to the first year at a traditional university.
Each module has credit points (10, 15 or 30) which indicates the amount of credit you can count towards an Open University qualification and how many hours it might take you to study. One credit point represents approximately ten hours of study.
Please note: these credit points are higher education (CATS) points and not part of the UCAS tariff.
