Our modules and qualifications are underpinned by world-class research, respected by employers, endorsed by professional bodies and rated consistently highly by students for the quality of tuition and support. Best of all, studying with us won’t tie you down – it’s flexible. 80% of our students are already in work, studying with the OU to develop their career or to get into a new one. Working (and earning) while you learn is not only cost effective but a wise option, giving you the edge in terms of work experience as well as qualifications.
On this site you’ll find news, information and updates about education and training opportunities to support your career and personal development, and about research in health and social care.
