Open Study

You don't have to pursue a full degree to study with us. We offer a range of free short courses.

Most of our short courses are on the OpenLearn site. These courses are the ideal starting point for your learning journey. They allow you to try out distance learning without committing to a full degree. As well as IT, computing, and cybersecurity courses, there are many courses that will prepare you for study with the Open University.

We are a partner with FutureLearn and offer courses and microcredentials through FutureLearn.
