Global support

The support we offer is extensive, and we pride ourselves on it. In fact, it’s one of the reasons why we’re regularly rated in the top of the UK’s National Student Survey.

From tutor support to the support of your peers, you’ll be surrounded by others who will encourage you and want you to succeed from day one of your studies.

From study guides to Skype sessions, we’ve thought of everything to make your learning experience with us as positive as possible.


When the study packs arrived it was like Santa had been. Everything was very self-explanatory and there was a guidance book to read before you started the text books and a study guide took you through each and every chapter. My tutor was very supportive.

The support we offer goes hand in hand with our flexible approach to learning. 


I can’t attend lectures at 9 am at a brick university, but I can do them at 9 pm after I have done all my other jobs… Being able to control and monitor my own learning is important [but] I also love the OU for the support I get from it.

Ann-Louise Shafer, BA (Hons) Childhood and Youth Development

Our unique combination of flexible study, world-class teaching and individually tailored support - backed by 6,500 associate lecturers - provides the best possible experience of higher education.
