This article is about the general concept. For the school in the UK, see Open University. For other uses of the term, see Open university (disambiguation).

An open university is a university with an open-door academic policy, with minimal or no entry requirements.[1] Open universities may employ specific teaching methods, such as open supported learning or distance education. However, not all open universities focus on distance education, nor do distance-education universities necessarily have open admission policies.[2]
