Applying to The Open University is different from other Universities.
We don’t have many courses or qualifications that have entry requirements, so you don’t need previous qualifications to study with us. As you’re coming from college we have an excellent credit transfer system which allows you to benefit from your successful study so far – either towards our Open degree or towards a more specialised subject degree. Go to: http://www.open.ac.uk/choose/collegeroutes/building-your-hn
To apply to study with the Open University, you first choose the course module, either online at: http://www.open.ac.uk/courses or by phoning our Student Registration and Enquiry Service on 0845 300 6090 and ordering a prospectus and talking through some study options, our financial support for students’ fees or how to apply for credit transfer with our advisers.
Second, you reserve a place either by phone - we send you a registration pack in the post - or online.
Finally, you pay and register for your course. We have a range of ways to help you pay your course fees and you can either do this online or by posting your registration paperwork back to us. For further information visit:
You can apply anytime up to the final enrolment date (usually several weeks before the course starts) and we have courses starting in February, May and October each year.
