Ways to pay for a qualification

affordability image

Studying with the Open University is investing in your own development, be it personal or professional.

There are a number of options to pay your fees including deferring payment until after you have completed your studies with a Part-time Tuition Fee Loan in England. These funding options are in line with the OU’s mission to keep undergraduate study as open and flexible as possible.

Financial support

The type and level of financial support you are entitled to varies, and depends not only on where you live but on your income, previous qualifications, level of intended study and when you intend to start studying.

Where will you be resident whilst you study?

If your country isn't listed here, visit our international prospectus.
