Accessibility is at the forefront of the OU's mission to be 'open to all'
You may not think of yourself as disabled but if you have a long-term health condition, specific learning difficulty (such as dyslexia) or mental health difficulty, then the OU considers you are entitled to reasonable adjustment to support your study. We use the terms ‘disabled’ or ‘disability’ to cover all these conditions.
The OU strives to make all aspects of study accessible to everyone, which is why more disabled students choose the OU than any other UK University.
Supporting disabled students
Last year we supported around 18,000 such students to achieve their study goals.
