Phone the Open University on the contact number of their undergraduate admissions office 0300 303 5303 for information about course fees or to request a prospectus for any of their STEM subject degree courses to be sent to your home address.

The Open University provides distance learning opportunities for anyone who would like to study a STEM subject from home. Notably, the off-campus university teaches a wide range of subjects in the field of science, technology, engineering and maths, available as full or part-time degree courses.


Undergraduate Enquiries – 0300 303 5303

You can contact the Open University on their undergraduate enquiries helpline number 0300 303 5303 to ask which STEM subjects you can study with the distance learning course provider. Callers can use this number to ask how to apply to a degree at the Open University, the cost of registration and for support if they have been out of education for some time. Furthermore, as a flexible course provider, the Open University provides both full and part time learning paths. You should therefore use this number to enquire how long it will take to complete an undergraduate STEM degree, along with the minimum amount of time you are expected to dedicate to your studies each week. You may even wish to enquire about the BSc Combined STEM degree, that allows you to build your course from a wide range of modules from across the department, including in psychology and sports science. Prospective students may wish to contact the Open University to request an undergraduate prospectus that will detail each of the science, technology, engineering and maths subjects in full. Moreover, it is important to contact the university to enquire about the course fees you are required to pay when you register at the OU. Similarly, callers should discuss the possibility of paying their fees in monthly instalments if they are unable to pay upfront. Finally, OU students are encouraged to get in touch if they are unable to access their course documents online, or login to their account to submit due assignments by the deadline.


When to Call the Open University

Phone numbers with the ’03’ prefix will charge callers the standard per-minute rate for any geographic call made from a UK landline or mobile.

An OU adviser is available to take calls from 8am-8pm Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm on Saturdays but lines are closed on Sunday and UK Bank Holidays.
