The Open University’s mission: open to people, places, methods and ideas sets us apart from other universities globally. The OU alumni and current student community is a movement of millions. We are enormously proud to promote educational opportunity and social justice.
Where you start in life shouldn’t dictate where you go.
Through world-leading academic research,and the latest pedagogic innovation and collaborative partnerships we are focused on transforming the design, content and delivery of supported, flexible open learning.
Pioneering teaching and learning methods enabling people across the United Kingdom, as well as internationally (through our international development partnerships,) we are now moving the OU from the University of the Air to the University of the Cloud.
