About Us

The Open University (OU) is the United Kingdom's only university dedicated to supported open learning. Most courses require no previous qualifications to begin, and studying can be undertaken alongside work and home commitments.

Open University Worldwide (OUW) manages the Open University’s sales of learning resources, including the best selling Good Study Guides, DVDs of award winning prime time BBC television co-productions and OU course vouchers.

Self study workbooks are the main teaching resource for Open University courses. They are designed with a clear structure, defined learning goals, easily digestible modules and self assessment activities to help students and non-students alike to get the most out of their learning.
