There are courses in a range of subject areas, from science to law, languages to accounting and much more. You can choose to study a 10 or 30 credit course in a subject area that interests you. The courses start in October and run for either six or nine months depending on the credit level.
The courses offered through YASS are at SCQF level 7: equivalent to the first year at a traditional university.
Each course has credit points (10 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.
