The Open University in Ireland

The Open University changes lives in Ireland. In fact, Ireland is home to more Open University students than most other countries in the world. Why so popular? We think it’s our unique combination of flexibility, respected qualifications, and outstanding teaching and support.

Whether you’re keen to study a subject that fascinates you, improve your career or pursue a passion, we’re sure to have the right course for you.

I would encourage people, perhaps in Ireland, who are thinking of a university degree but not in a position where they can give up work, to consider The Open University. They will get so much support from The Open University and their peers, all in the exact same position as them, trying to juggle family life, work and study.
