Student Policies and Regulations

Fee Rules

The Open University may charge different fees for Students in different countries, for different levels of study, for different modules and for Students who start or change their studies at different times. This is in line with the different ways in which higher education may be funded, the costs of providing educational services, or because The Open University provides a different range of services.

This document explains how to work out which fee scheme applies to you and what this means, so that The Open University can charge you the correct fee for your circumstances.
