Benefits of being part of the community


Making a difference

Every year we present our highest achieving students and outstanding alumni with achievement awards. Students are recognised for their outstanding achievement in a specific module or qualification. Alumni are recognised for using the learning from their OUBS qualification to make a difference to their organisation, community or society.

The Open University

We're proud to have helped thousands of alumni make the next step in their lives. We hope you have enjoyed your study experiences and we're proud to have you as part of the #OUFamily, for life.

In 2019, the OU celebrated its 50th year, and it was a chance for the whole organisation reflect on our past, present and future. The video below aims to show how we are committed to our mission - to be Open to People, Places and Ideas - and that we believe where you start in life shouldn't limit where you go.
