The Open University


The Open University is the most recently established university in Great Britain. It was set up in 1969 for those people who missed the chance of going to an ordinary university. The university differs from other universities in that its students work in full time jobs and can study only in their free time by means of distance teaching materials, through correspondence and broadcasting. Students study about ten hours a week and they do a lot of watching and listening to the weekly lectures through different communication systems.

As the university is really ´´open´´ neither formal entrance examinations, nor qualifications are required at undergraduate level. Students are admitted on a ´´first came, first served´´ basis. Each student gets the help of his own tutor who he meets regularly.

The university has some faculties and three programmes of study-undergraduate, associate and postgraduate. The Bachelor of Art degree is built up on a credit system. Students final mark is based on the exams in October and on the written assignments during the year.

It takes six or eight years of study at the usual speed of course.
