The collection of courses as a whole demonstrates The Open University's commitment to delivering a curriculum that is appropriate for the differing requirements of each of the countries within the United Kingdom.

These courses have been collected and developed from across The Open University's catalogue, chosen because of their particular relevance to Scotland.
