Personal Learning Grants


Do you know learners who are ready to take the first steps into higher education?

To open up higher education, The Open University in Wales is offering a number of free places on the People, work and society Access course for people living in targeted postcode areas* in Wales. This project is funded by the three Reaching Wider partnerships in Wales.

These courses are delivered part-time through distance learning, and are very flexible for learners.

After completing the Open University course, students will be able to either continue their studies with The Open University or will be guaranteed an interview at one of the partner institutions.

- Places for this project are limited so please pass the course information on to any learners who may want to apply as soon as possible.

- Learners need to live in eligible postcode areas

- Those who aren’t eligible for this project, but are on a low household income may be able to secure other funding for study through The Open University

Apply now: Learners can find out if they are eligible, request more information and an application pack through this webform

Sponsored places will fill up soon, the Access course starts in October 2018.

We are taking applications now!
