If you are a self-funding student or have decided not to use a UK/EU tuition fee loan The Open University Student Budget Accounts Ltd (OUSBA) would like to make it as easy as we can for you to pay your fees, which is why we offer a flexible payment system.
OUSBA is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Open University and has been giving OU students financial access to OU modules and qualifications since 1998. When you charge your fees to OUSBA Ltd, the company pays The Open University (OU) on your behalf so that the OU can register you for your module or qualification. This is a secure, quick and easy way to fully pay your fees as each module is completed. Its a really convenient pay as you go option. Once registered with the OU you have two options, to:
|Number of Monthly Repayments (Duration of Agreement):||12 Months|
|Rate of Interest:||5.0% (fixed)*|
|OU Fee (Total Amount of Credit):||£3,096.00 (cash price)|
|APR||5.1% APR representative|
|Total Amount Payable:||£3,180.36|
|Amount of Interest:||£84.36|

An Open University Student Budget Accounts (OUSBA) agreement is a legally binding credit agreement between you and OUSBA Ltd. By signing this agreement you personally will remain liable for the repayments and are bound by its terms and condition. This applies even if you are trying to secure funds to pay your fees from a third party.
As a responsible lender every application undergoes a Credit and Affordability Check with a Credit Reference Agency to ensure you can meet your financial obligations.
