Open University

The Open University has had a presence in the Island for more than 35 years and in the last 15 alone, Guernsey residents have completed more than 2,000 course modules successfully - mainly working towards undergraduate degrees but also studying certificates, diplomas and postgraduate qualifications.

We provide financial support for students studying for a first degree through the Open University. Application forms and a student declaration for courses can be obtained from our Student Finance team.

The Guide available to download from this page explains how we can help fund on-Island undergraduate degree courses.

Students should register with the Open University before making an application to the Student Finance team. Students are then required to send in copies of their Open University registration agreement (completed) and a blank sponsorship agreement (obtainable from the Open University), together with the completed application form and student declaration.

Once your application has been assessed by us, you will be notified in writing of the outcome and your registration agreement and, if applicable, a sponsorship agreement will be returned to you. You should then forward all this paperwork to the Open University to finalise your registration.

If you have already paid for a course, please send us a copy of your registration agreement with the Open University, together with confirmation from the Open University that you have paid your tuition fees (e.g. an original receipt), plus the completed application form and student declaration.

Please note that you will need to make a fresh application for each course that makes up your degree. Applicants are asked to note that the OU requires students to complete enrolment one month before the course starts and the Student Finance team requires approximately one month prior to that in order to process applications. Therefore students should be aware that they may need to submit applications for grants two months prior to the start of the course.

We will respond to your request as quickly as possible, but if for any reason there is a delay in this process (perhaps because we need to ask you for supplementary information), then you are advised to keep in touch with the Open University registration service to ensure your place is held open.
