The Open University is one of the universities in the Netherlands and Belgium. There are, however, differences with the regular universities: the Open University is specifically dedicated to online education and research. The educational programme is structured in such a way that it enables you to study part-time.
As a publicly funded university, the Open Universiteit has been assigned a unique role within the higher education system of the Netherlands. Openness is ingrained within its DNA; it stands for the continuous study, improvement and development of new teaching methods and techniques, along with sharing knowledge and experience. In its teaching and research, the OU makes intensive use of the possibilities afforded by the internet. Personalised and interactive online education lies at the core of its educational model.
The Open University is the leading part-time university in the Netherlands and Flanders, offering high-quality, personalised and interactive online.
