At postgraduate level we offer Certificates in Business Administration and Clinical Leadership, Diplomas in Management, and Management and Business Research. We also offer the MBA and an MSc in Management and Business Research Methods.

Law courses

The Open University School of Law has the largest taught undergraduate Law Programme in the UK.  It provides a flexible full or part-time distance-learning route to an LLB (Hons) with optional tutorials, which are either held face to face or electronically.

Access to the Law Programme requires no previous study or qualifications. This attracts students from a wide range of backgrounds, of all ages and with different experiences. Associate lecturers are drawn from a cross-section of the legal community (e.g. university lecturers, solicitors and barristers).

To be awarded the LLB (Hons), a student requires 360 credits.  There are two compulsory law modules at level 1 and level 2 (W101, W102, W202 and W203) providing 60 credits each.  There are a further two compulsory modules at level 3, W302 providing 60 credits and W330 providing 30 credits.  Students then have a choice of one further module from either W340, W350 or W360, which provide the last 30 credits required.  Graduate entrant students are exempt from stage 1 and require only 240 credits to gain the degree.
