Come along and join us for a celebration of 50 years of OU Psychology in Scotland. Bring yourself, your family, friends and dancing shoes. 

The OU is 50 this year and the OU in Scotland Psychology team are hosting this event as part of the celebrations. This public event is open to OU psychology students, their friends and families and anyone with an interest in psychology and/or The Open University.

This big celebratory event will take place in Glasgow at the National Piping Centre, within walking distance from the bus station and Queen Street train station.

3.30pm – Registration with Open University Students Association (OUSA) goody bags and information from their reps.
3.45pm – Hear about how and why the OU started, about its Scottish founder Jennie Lee, what the mission is and what it was like in the early days. Hear more about the exciting psychology research that is being undertaken today by academics (which includes psychology tutors). And most importantly hear from OU students about their study journeys and prepare to be inspired for the future.
6pm – After you have worked up a hunger listening to all of this you can tuck into a delicious free hot and cold buffet. During this time you'll have a chance to chat to students and their families.
7.30pm - Then the celebrations really begin with The Republic of Soul, a fun local band who will have you dancing the night away playing your favourite tunes. During the evening a cash bar will be offering a range of alcoholic drinks.
10pm – We will finish at 10pm to give you all time to catch your trains and buses home.
