How We Listen

How we hear feedback from our students

The Open University is dedicated to continuously developing the student experience, using your feedback to ensure we are student-focused.

Our Student Charter highlights our commitment to Student Voice:

"We actively support authentic student engagement in University decision-making, closing the feedback loop; and commit to building partnership between staff and students."

Student Voice is also central to our Teaching and Learning Plan:

"Students and their voice are integrated into the planning of our teaching to enhance the quality of our provision."

There are numerous ways that the OU actively engages students to provide the University with feedback. This page provides an insight into feedback opportunities throughout your journey as a student at the OU. Visit the You Said, We Did page to see how the Student Voice has changed things.
