With the OU, you’re never alone. Someone logs onto our network every 0.5 seconds, and over 1,000 tutorials are held every week, either online or face to face at study locations across the UK. Online forums are alive with people like you, and the opportunity to discuss, debate and socialise together doesn’t stop when you log off. Our students regularly get together to attend tutorials* or local study groups, and we have an active students’ association.
When you graduate, you’ll have access to the OU Alumni Association, one of the largest and most supportive networks of its kind in the world. Nearly 100,000 alumni keep in touch around the globe, tapping in to the diverse, talented and influential peer groups that are part and parcel of an OU education.
