What is The Open University?
We were founded to make higher education available to all. We mix online learning and group tutorials to create supported open learning degree courses that work for our students. You don’t need to move away, you choose where and when to study.
We offer around 120 qualifications and 600 modules, and are the only Scottish university rated over 90% for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for ten years running. Perhaps that’s why 18,000 students, from Shetland to Stranraer, are currently earning their degrees with us.
