We have always been passionate about collaborating with partners in different places, sharing methods and ideas from all over the world.
Our partnerships are a testament to that. We form new partnerships frequently, while some of our oldest relationships go back over 25 years. We believe in long-term connections and learning, backed by an experienced team of staff dedicated to developing and supporting partner relationships.
We also believe in delivering strategic and financially viable propositions that are sustainable and provide long-term benefits for both The Open University and our partners.
