The Open University

We’re a partner institution of The Open University (OU), who validate all our BA (Hons) and Masters programmes for students enrolled before September 2019. From September 2019 onwards, students will be enrolled on and awarded a Plymouth College of Art degree, following the college being granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP) in Spring 2019. From September 2019, we will continue to operate as an independent Higher Education Institution, but with the full regulatory power to award our own BA (Hons) and Masters awards.

For more information about studying on a programme validated by The Open University, please download their student guide below or at this link here.

All new students will follow the Open University approved Academic Regulations, which can be downloaded below or at this link here.

If you require copies of any of the documentation referenced within the Regulations please contact the Deputy Registrar Margaret Campbell at
