Wales' favourite university”
People love studying with The Open University in Wales - that's why they continually vote us the top Welsh university for overall student satisfaction.*
Wherever you live, from Cardiff to Wrexham, from Caernarfon to Llanelli, your location is no barrier to studying with the OU in Wales. What's more, our courses are flexible so you can study at a time and place that suits you, fitting study around other commitments such as your job, caring responsibilities or a busy family life.
You don't need formal qualifications to study at The Open University and there are many courses for people new to study. You may also be entitled to financial support, use our Financial Support Eligibility Checker to find out what financial support is available or watch a short video explaining the funding options and also other ways to pay.
The Welsh Government has announced there are no changes to the funding and student support arrangements for part-time students in Wales for 2013/14 and therefore undergraduate fees for OU students in Wales for 2013/14 will only change, as is normal, in line with inflation.
To find out more, ring our local student support advisers based in our Cardiff headquarters on (029) 2047 1170 or email us. We're also available at events throughout Wales. You can also access our range of study skills guides, available in English and Welsh.
