Who Are Open University?

The Open University teaches through flexible, blended learning. This means that you can fit study around a current job role – for example through a degree apprenticeship. Currently three in every four OU students are already in work and 41% of part-time UK undergraduates are taught by The Open University. This means the OU is ideal for people with busy lives looking to develop their skills for work.

What Open University Offers

The tutor-supported learning is both varied and interactive. Online learning can be accessed 24/7 on computers, tablets and mobile devices, so apprentices can study at home, work and on the move. Online forums, discussion groups and in some cases face-to-face sessions allow apprentices to learn from different industries and backgrounds.


Apprentices and the employer will be supported by the following key people from The Open University: Practice Tutor, Academic Tutor, Apprentice Programme Delivery Manager. Tutors will facilitate study, support learning and feedback, and mark module assessments. Work-based learning is a key aspect of degree apprenticeships which means that new skills and knowledge can be applied immediately to the workplace.
