Open University Courses
For People On Low Incomes
The OU is offering courses to people on benefits or low incomes in a move to open up access to part-time higher education.  A Scotland wide drive has been launched to recruit students who may have been deterred from applying to study at university level in the past because of the costs involved.

Through the scheme funded by the Scottish Higher Education Funding Council people will get financial support to cover the full cost of an OU course.  It also includes course fees, the loan of books and even special rates for a personal computer if required.

The new initiative applies to nearly all the OU's under graduates level courses and so long as a student remains eligible they will be entitled to a free place in subsequent years.

A copy of the OU prospectus and further information is available by calling Tel 0131 226 3851
