Module Materials

Module materials are sent out after registration is completed and as the module start date approaches.

Course materials

There may be more than one mailing as the standard books and the materials that are specifically provided in an alternative format are usually sent seperately.

All mailings are tracked apart from those sent via the Royal Mail.

We recommend that the student uses the contents checklist included in each mailing to ensure they have received all the materials listed.

Library Support for Level 2, Level 3 or Postgraduate Students 

For students on a Level 2, Level 3 or Postgraduate module, we now offer a Library Support Service where volunteer students at the OU can help with finding research articles for students in prison.
