An Overview of the PhD Programme

As a postgraduate research student at The Open University you will enjoy the best of both worlds. You can work individually on a face-to-face level with supervisors like at other universities and participate in the Research School’s year-round programme of workshops, seminars and training for postgraduate students.

Moreover, you will have the opportunity to apply to be involved in teaching at the OU as part of the FASS PhD student teaching scheme. You can, however, also study long-distance, benefiting from the vast experience provided by The Open University and the latest communication technologies that mean you can be in regular contact with your supervisors.

As a research student at the OU, you will also have access to the OU library with its extensive collections of digital journals and books, as well as being able to become a member of a research library close to you through the SCONUL Access scheme.
