The Open University in Wales
We are the leading experts in part-time, flexible learning. Every year, we help thousands of ordinary people achieve extraordinary things.
We have been at the top of the National Student Survey in Wales for student satisfaction for ten years running.
The Open University (OU) has appointed Peter Horrocks, Director of the BBC’s World Service, as its new Vice-Chancellor.
An OU graduate from North Wales was the winner of this year’s Royal College of Nursing Welsh Health Care Support Worker of the Year award.
One of the challenges for the distance learner taking an OU language module is very often the mastery of pronunciation. A Wales led initiative to create open educational resources to help students improve the pronunciation of key sounds in a range of languages has led to a UK wide project to enhance assessment feedback and the student learning experience.
Research at The Open University ranks in the top third of UK universities.
Our events include open days, community learning opportunities, conferences, seminars and lectures.
