So you can start with a Level 2 Course.
Where to start in The Open Programme
Wherever you start, it is a good idea to think about the courses and subjects you may want to study in the future. At the OU, courses at Level 2 build on Level 1, and courses at Level 3 build on Level 2. It is therefore common for courses at Level 2 and 3 to recommend or require you to have previously studied specific courses. Don't forget, you can talk to an adviser if you need help considering options.
Starting at Level 1
If you haven't studied at university level before, you should start with a Level 1 course. Our Level 1 courses are designed to introduce you to Open University study and to help you develop distance-learning skills while gaining a solid grounding in a particular subject.
