There are other people in Italy, and we do have face-to-face opportunities at the residential schools, which are really good, so it’s not really that distant actually. It’s also challenging, because you have to find the time to explore all the possible materials, but if you do, it’s really helpful.

- Flexible – students work where and when they choose to fit in with jobs, families and other commitments
- All-inclusive – students get all the high quality materials they need to study
- Supportive – personal tutors provide academic expertise, guidance and feedback and run group tutorials; and specialist advisers are on hand to help with other aspects of OU study
- Social – students get together through tutorials, online conferencing, study networks and course forums.
