You do not need to be a student at The Open University to benefit from our world-class knowledge and expertise. As a school we feel engaging with the public is very important, so we run and take part in many Outreach and public engagement events. We believe that computing is for everyone, so offer a broad range of activities from events aimed at school children, through to talks for specialist audiences.
We ensure that our teaching and research is always up-to-date and relevant to the rapidly-changing world of computing and digital technologies. Our Industrial advisory board contains a wealth of talent and expertise. We consult it regularly and often to ensure that the school is constantly aware of the latest developments in technoloyg and that we continue to address the needs of industry and the wider community.
Our work with the Digital policy alliance means we have a voice at the highest levels of UK IT policy decision-making, allowing us to inform and influence how IT is used for the best interests of all.
