The Open University is consistently rated as excellent for its student support, and for good reason.
From day one you’ll have a designated tutor who will be your first port of call for any queries.
Throughout all the courses I have done the support has been amazing. You can always ask any question and the tutors will always help you as much as they can.Freya Schotte, BA English Language & Literature
My tutors have been really great. Just the best tutors I could have asked for. All of them have been amazing. At the end of all your courses you get a questionnaire to fill in and I always give them five stars. They’re so supportive.Morag Storrar, BA Open Degree
There's an entire student community that will be a source of mutual support and encouragement, as well as the wider OU staff and system.
We pride ourselves, in particular, on the support we provide to students with disabilities.
At [my brick university] I felt very much on my own – I didn’t with the OU.Greg Bensberg MBE, MBA graduate
In short, we have all the support in place to meet each student's needs and help everyone to succeed.
