Open University offers you a great opportunity for continuing education and supplementary training.
You can apply for Open University enrollment on all our courses, including summer schools. However, our own full time students have a prior claim to the course seats, so only vacancies are offered to Open University students.
Important: You cannot be enrolled on Open University courses that form part of the curriculum of your full-time degree programme.
All courses in our course database are available as Open University courses - provided that there are vacancies. This also pertains to our summer schools.
In the online course database you will find all relevant information regarding the courses: teachers, timetables, curiculla, exam etc.
You are not allowed to complete an entire BSc or a 2-year MSc on Open University. You can take up to half of the BSc and half of the MSc programme, that is:
90 ECTS credits on the Bachelor's programme
60 ECTS credits on the Master's programme
This does not include neither the bachelor's thesis nor the master's thesis on Open University.
You must hold basic knowledge of mathematics and social sciences corresponding to the highest level in upper secondary (high) school education.

Furthermore, it is of the utmost importance that you speak, read and write English well. Without a solid background in English, you will be unable to participate in class discussions, social activities and to participate in the exams.
Exemptions from the admission requirements
If you are studying or have studied on university level within the areas of economics, business and the social sciences, you can apply for an exemption from the admission requirements.
If you have another educational background and/or relevant work experience, you are also welcome to apply for an exemption.
