Hi, if I study my first degree with open uni would I be able to go to an actual uni to do my second degree? I would like the experience of uni aswell but unfortunately I don’t have the grades to go so I thought doing open uni to get my first degree would be a good idea.

Yes, of course! If you get a good grade on your OU degree you could go on to do a second undergrad or a masters at a brick university.

But if you're using SFE/student loan to fund your OU degree, remember that there is no funding for a second degree

Edit: of course there are some exceptions to funding. Medical degrees, etc.

This information is a bit out of date. There are many more part-time (and therefore distance learning) options now open for funding if you already have a degree, mostly STEM related. (I believe the OU's R28 Combined STEM degree was designed just to take advantage of these newer rules, while maintaining most of the flexibility of an Open Degree.)

The full list his here, under the "If you already have a degree" section.
