Pathways to Success

Pathways to success guidePathways to Success is an interactive guide that will take you through the free online learning resources available from The Open University.

Why choose Pathways to Success?

There are many reasons for enrolling on a higher education course. However if you’re not sure whether you’re ready for accredited study or you can’t decide what subject to take, Pathways to Success can help.

To get started, simply click on the picture of the guide on the right of the page (PDF opens in new window) and work through it at your own pace.

To get the best from Pathways to Success, you need a hard (paper) copy to work with alongside the interactive version.  You can print one out, or get one from the OU in Wales by emailing us.

Or why not try our new Pathways to Success Facebook pages with self-supporting Facebook groups to help you on your way.
