The Open University in Scotland is closely monitoring the coronavirus pandemic and will be following guidance issued by the UK and Scottish governments.
Our priority is ensuring the health and wellbeing of our staff and students, whilst ensuring that the university’s business can run as smoothly as possible.
The OU has set up these advice pages, for up to date information:
While our OU in Scotland building may be closed, we remain open; staff are working at home and our student support team are still giving information, advice and support. The university has cancelled face-to-face tutorials until further notice.
We’ve temporarily suspended telephone support and are moving to online webchat and email support. For now, please email Scotland@open.ac.uk rather than call us.
