Open University Distance Learning

The Open University is the largest university ion the UK with over 250,000 students currently registered and 11,700 staff. It was set up in by the government in 1969 to provide wider access to university education. It has a very good reputation.

In addition to degree level courses (which cost money, but are very good value) they offer introductory courses for free through the Openlearn programme. ( )

The OpenLearn website gives free access to Open University course materials. This is the LearningSpace, where you'll find hundreds of free study units, each with a discussion forum. Study independently at your own pace or join a group and use the free learning tools to work with others. If you like the approach, they obviously hope you'll sign up for an OU degree later on.

Some, but not all OU degree course are supported worldwide others only in Europe.

Meanwhile I believe Openlearn is freely available anywhere. Subjects covered are:

Arts and Humanities

Business and Management

Childhood and Youth

Computing and ICT


Engineering and Technology

Environment, Development and International Studies

Health and Social Care



Mathematics and Statistics




Social Science
