OpenLearn - the home of free learning from The Open University. Are you looking for a new topic to explore, or want to dig deeper into something you've already discovered? Whether it’s a 60-second animated video or a 24-hour course you are after, you will find it on OpenLearn for free.

OpenLearn has:

  • 900+ short courses (ranging from 1 - 100 hours of study)
  • thousands of articles, quizzes and interactive games
  • hundreds of videos and audios, ranging from Greek history to modern-day politics, and everything in between
  • printed posters and booklets made for our TV & radio programmes co-produced with the BBC.

The content covers a wide range of subjects, with many of our free courses being adapted extractions from OU modules. All of our courses enable you to earn a Statement of participation and some also allow you to earn a free digital badge. You can use your badge or statement of participation to share your achievement with others although they do not carry any formal credit towards a qualification.

Looking for study tips or life advice? Then look no further as our 'For Study' and 'For Life' resources will help prepare you for study, aid your progression to keep you on track, and then when you are ready, offer guidance towards a fulfilling career.
