Coronavirus (COVID-19)

COVID-19 advice webpage address graphic - https://help.open.ac.uk/coronavirus-covid19

The Open University in Scotland is closely monitoring the coronavirus pandemic and will be following guidance issued by the UK and Scottish governments.

Our priority is ensuring the health and wellbeing of our staff and students, whilst ensuring that the university’s business can run as smoothly as possible. 


The OU has set up these advice pages, for up to date information: 

While our OU in Scotland building may be closed, we remain open; staff are working at home and our student support team are still giving information, advice and support. The university has cancelled face-to-face tutorials until further notice.

Should you have an enquiry you would like to discuss with us, please call 0131 226 3851 / 0300 303 5303 or email Scotland@open.ac.uk.

Please note that we are now not able to process any paper-based application forms (such as for Part-Time Fee Grants and Disabled Students' Allowances). All applications must now be made online. We appreciate your patience during this time.
