All students registered to study with the O U are automatically members* of the Students Association (commonly referred to as OUSA). Our organisation is run by students for students. We have a network of local Assemblies and representatives throughout the O U regions, as well as operating centrally.
With our widespread membership we aim to represent the views of Open University students whatever they study and wherever they live. In order to survive in such an ever changing, demanding environment we need to ensure that we stay ahead in terms of issues coming through the University (as a brief example, fees and the new Student Support Strategy) as well as continuing to work to represent the diverse student body of the O U.
We can’t address issues that we’re unaware of, so we need you to let us know what’s on your mind. Whether you’re on the move, at home, work, or on Facebook; we’re here for you and listening!
* You can opt-out of the Students Association (by emailing email@example.com) but why would you? Your membership is free and gives you access to some great sources of support.
OUSA's right to exist is enshrined in the University's Charter. Our purpose is to serve your interests and to ensure that the student voice is heard throughout the University.
These are the Aims and Objectives contained in the Association's constitution:
