B3 Open Award Regulations

  • An Open Award is an award achieved by accreditation of a student’s prior learning and through current learning as demonstrated by completing learning contracts or passing course units or modules. The Open Award is differentiated from combined study because it includes learning experiences other than these wholly achieved through existing Oxford Brookes University modules.
