OUA Pathways

If you want to study, but you’re not sure where to start, OUA Pathways are a great stepping stone.

How it works

We've built 10 great pathways to start your study journey:

  • Business
  • Business Management
  • Communication
  • Criminology
  • Education
  • Engineering
  • Health
  • Humanities
  • Science
  • Social science

Pick a pathway and start studying the four preselected subjects—without committing to a particular degree.

When you've completed your subjects, you can enter your degree and continue studying the field. Or, try another direction entirely! You decide what’s next.

Pathway advantages

As soon as you start your Pathway, you’re on the road to completing your degree. When you study an OUA Pathway you’ll gain credit for the subjects you successfully complete, then you can apply these credits towards your degree.

Additionally, you’ll have a better understanding of the field, and what online study is all about.
