About Us

The Open University was created over 50 years ago to open up education to all. Through the power of learning we transform lives and communities, opening a world of possibilities for everyone. A global leader in higher education, we support learners in the UK, Ireland and across the world, using the power of technology and our world-class expertise in supported distance learning.

Non-selective in most of our undergraduate courses, we enable students from many different backgrounds to achieve the highest standards of academic and professional excellence.

As experts in distance learning and online courses we’ve helped over 80,000 people across Ireland fulfil their potential. As well as degrees, we offer a range of certificates, diplomas of higher education and vocational skills through short microcredential courses.
