OpenPlus entry with the Open University
The University of Sheffield and the Open University have created a flexible way for UK students to study physics. On the OpenPlus scheme, you can spend two years studying in your own time with the Open University, allowing you to combine work with your studies. If you complete this successfully, you can transfer directly onto the second year of one of the following degree programmes:
- BSc Physics
- MPhys Physics
- BSc Physics and Philosophy
- MPhys Physics with Philosophy
You'll then study as a full time student and graduate with a University of Sheffield degree.
|About the course||
There are no formal entry requirements for the Open University part of the OpenPlus course other than an interest and enthusiasm for physics, and a willingness to learn.
Progressing to the University of Sheffield part of your degree is subject to you passing the Open University part. You will also need an acceptable qualification in written and spoken English – this is normally a GCSE English grade C or better.
We can also accept other qualifications. A full list is given on the following webpage: Entry requirements
|Fees and funding||
For the first two years, you'll pay Open University fees. We'll then ask you to pay the usual University of Sheffield tuition fees for the rest of your course.
