For most undergraduate degrees, you don’t need any formal qualifications, or to pass an entry test, to study with us.
For postgraduate degrees, you will normally be required to hold a degree equivalent to a UK bachelors degree.
For all levels of study with The Open University, you will need the following:
- Proficiency in the English language. Please see English skills.
- Access to a computer with broadband internet access, which will be vital for online learning. See what do I need?
Next you should decide on the course you’d like to study. Visit courses to see which Open University studies are available to you in your country of residence.
And remember: any higher-education studies you’ve completed elsewhere may count towards your Open University qualification. Learn more at previous study.
