Academic Progress Policy 21/22 (Taught Courses)

In March 2021, The Open University published its new Academic Progress Policy 21/22 (Taught Courses) for the first time.

This policy defines:

  • What constitutes sufficient academic progress for Apprentices to be able to continue studying for their apprenticeship qualification
  • How academic progress is monitored
  • How and when study restrictions are applied to Apprentices
  • How to apply for permission to undertake further study if a study restriction has been applied, and who to obtain permission from

There have been no significant changes to this policy.
