We hold regular events giving all potential students the opportunity to meet OU staff and discuss what it's like to study with us, and which courses are most suitable. You can get specific subject information or view some of our course materials depending on which event you attend. For venues and dates visit Events Near You

Specifically for service personnel, we also take part in most of the Festival of Learning (previously Adult Learners' Week) events primarily held in May at Army, Navy and RAF bases across the UK.

For further information please speak to your Personal Learning Advisor (PLA).
