    Hi all,

    Im interested in doing an access course in order to get me into a good uni. Is this possible with the Open University and if so, what are they?

    Many thanks

    At the Open University access courses are called Openings courses,

    It is possible to study on a 2+2 scheme, where you study certain modules with the OU and then transfer to a brick uni.

    Universities may also accept some OU courses for entry at their own discretion. In that case, you should email unis and ask what they would require. I highly doubt they would accept just Openings courses for example.
