The Open university (OU) is the largest university by student registration in the UK. When it started in 1969, it was a pioneer in distance learning. It has now gone stupendously further by offering greater access to education and training.
The OU, through its subsidiary; Future Learn has now combined with over 40 top universities and organisations across the world to offer short courses, CPD and degree programmes. These courses are in different fields with many of them being free. Yes, FREE. You can take these short courses and put them towards an undergraduate or postgraduate course.
