The Virtual Campus is a secure, web-based learning environment delivered by a partnership consisting of Her Majesty’s Prison & Probation Service (HMPPS), education providers and service suppliers. The Open University is one of those partners.
The majority of the modules we offer in our SiSE prospectus are now available through the Virtual Campus for students who reside in prisons in England and Wales.
Modules will be in the standard OU format which will only work on Hybrid systems in prison. This is the result of work which has been undertaken by HMPPS, Meganexus, XMA and the OU.
Studying through the Virtual Campus delivers significant benefits to students:
Log in details are sent to the OU contact at the prison once students are registered on modules available via the Virtual Campus and as the module start date approaches. We recommend that students do not start using their module website(s) until the module start date.
