A hall full of OU graduates at a graduation ceremonyWelcome to the OU Alumni Association.

Qualifying with the OU is an outstanding achievement – but the benefits don’t end there. Your free, lifetime membership of the Alumni Association instantly places you at the heart of a 380,000-strong community of OU alumni who know exactly how that achievement feels.

This website aims to help you continue your relationship with The Open University, by accessing a range of member benefits, resources and free learning materials available to you; and help you ‘give back’ by contributing to our campaigns, sharing our content or volunteering.

We’d also like you to stay connected to your university, and to share your successes, support current students along their journey and help spread the word to potential new students.

As a member of the Alumni Association you’ll still receive communications from us, including invites to events and the latest OU news.

So, welcome to the Alumni Association, you’ve earned your right to be here.

Karen Hart

Deputy Director of Development: Alumni Engagement
