Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Open University in Wales is continuing to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure students and staff can study and work safely.

We remain open and will be following guidance issued by the UK and Welsh governments. We're working hard to ensure that the majority of our services to students are unaffected and you can still contact us on 029 2047 1170 or email

The most up to date information can be found on this advice page for students.

We also have this page which has more information on what the OU is doing to support students, staff, alumni and the public during this time.
