We aim to offer inclusive access to our learning and teaching products and services and endeavour to ensure that our methods and ideas are open to all. We provide opportunities for previously excluded groups to study by using a blend of online distance education and innovative study materials. For those students who require additional support we provide a wide range of flexible study support and services.
If you have little or no previous study experience there are modules that have been specially designed to help you find out what it’s like to study with us, get a taste of a subject area, develop your study skills, and build your confidence. In addition, we provide a wide range of free learning resources through OpenLearn, Future Learn, Youtube EDU and iTunesU learning materials.

We are pleased to make the above resources on our equality and diversity website available to other organisations free of charge, to help advance equality. We only ask that you credit The Open University if you use or adapt them.
