The Open University remains open, operating and recruiting.  

Organisations and internet service providers have increased their on-line security and we recommend that candidates check your ‘junk’ or ‘spam’ folder as emails sent from our application system may be diverted to these.

The University is carefully monitoring guidance issued by the UK Government regarding COVID-19 and the latest information for our students, can be found here:

Many activities are however now being only conducted remotely, including interviews.  We use TEAMS for remote interviews and will provide guidance for candidates not familiar with using TEAMS. We will also seek alternatives where TEAMS isn’t possible.
