Study skills | Open University

By selecting a degree programme you are able to see the general content as well as the possible degree programme-specific content. You do not have to select a degree programme to see the Open University's instructions.


University studies require a lot of skills, especially those related to reading, writing and thinking. These skills improve as your studies progress and you can also practise them consciously. 

On these pages, you will find instructions, tips and exercises for insightful reading and written expression. Take a look at the courses to support your studies as well as the study skills webinars open to the public!
