Changes to policy and curriculum

BA (Hons) English Language and Literature (Q39) - Qualification amendment

The Open University plans to make some changes to Stage 1 of the BA (Honours) in English Language and Literature (Q39). This change will provide a more discipline-specific path of study through students' qualifications.

In October 2021 we will replace the options previously available at Stage 1 with Introducing the English Language (L101), which will now be compulsory. All other module options currently available to study on this qualification will no longer be available for students to register on from this date. If a student wishes to complete one of the optional modules currently available to study, they must do so by this date, or they will instead be required to study L101.

Please talk to your Student Support Team if you need any further information. You can find out how to contact them on Contact the OU.
