Taking your first steps into higher education

Description

This free badged course from The Open University explores - What is university study like? Is it for me? If you are asking yourself these questions, this free badged course is for you.

Taking your first steps into higher education provides insights into how subjects are studied at university. This introduction to carefully selected materials helps you decide what you might want to study. You will be looking at three main areas: arts and humanities, the social sciences and maths, technology and science.

Course format

Although the course has been designed to be studied over eight weeks, the course is open all year for you to join at anytime and study at your own pace.

At the end of each week a short quiz provides an opportunity for you to check your understanding. These short quizzes also prepare you for the longer quizzes at the end of Weeks 5 and 8. If you score over 50% on both these quizzes you can claim the Open University digital badge for Taking your first steps into higher education.
