Global classroom

As an Open University student you’ll be part of a global classroom and a worldwide community, wherever you are in the world.

Heather studied with The Open University from Shetland, 200 miles north of Aberdeen in Scotland:


It’s fabulous. Once you join you become part of a huge community and the support you get is wonderful.

Heather Chalmers, Postgraduate Certificate in Education

Fatima studied with us from Morocco, and found friendship and support from her fellow students through the forums:


The OU MBA was suggested to me by my employer - I work for the British Embassy in Morocco… If you have a question, the tutors are there and you also have your fellow students on the forums willing to answer any queries… I have never really felt like I was at a distance… Throughout my studies I made friends through the forums.

Fatima Zahra Kendoum, MBA

Petra Kapetanic also studied for an MBA with us, and especially enjoyed the residential aspect:


I connected a lot with other students at the residential schools and tutorials over the weekend and I met some great people and made really good friends as well.
