Support before you begin, and throughout your studies
We make sure that you get the best possible start to your OU journey. Our online induction programme will familiarise you with distance learning and your chosen subject, and show you how to get the best from your time with us.
Then for every module you study, you'll have an expert tutor to offer academic guidance and advice, provide feedback on your coursework, and lead group tutorials. You can contact them online, by email and on the phone.
Once you've registered with us you will be allocated to a specialist Student Support Team for the subject area you have chosen. You'll also have access to a huge range of information and advice online, our computing help desk and careers information.
