How you can get involved and contribute to change

Here you can explore what opportunities are available for you to get involved in developing the student experience at the OU

Have you studied 120 credits or more at the OU in an academic year? Are you free on 7 October to share your experiences?

Location: Online/Virtual  Duration: One off  Dedication: 4-8 hours

Posted on:

On Wednesday 7 October we are facilitating a four-hour focus event about flexible study intensity which will be attended by OU academics and tutors.

We would like some OU students to join us and share their experience of studying 120 credits, or more, in an academic year. We want you to let us know what has worked well and where you think we could make improvements to support you. We are after a five-minute lightning talk and there will potentially be questions from participants at the event.

If you are free from 09:30-13:30 on Wednesday 7 October and would like to share your experience, please click on the link below and complete this form.

Depending on the level of interest shown unfortunately we may not be able to accommodate everyone at the event.

Thank you

The Office of The Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Students)

What do you want to be consulted on in 2020?

Location: Online/Virtual  Duration: One off  Dedication: Less than 1 hour

A new online forum is now open at for nominating topics that you think would benefit from broad consultation between students and the University in 2020.

This forum is open to all students and replaces previous forums for nominating topics. There are a number of previously nominated topics that have been approved in principle and we hope to put together appropriate student consultation for these in the near future.

We really want to find out which areas of the student experience you think should be prioritised for getting student feedback in the coming year.

To hear about other opportunities for student involvement in OU activities, please sign up to our mailing list by completing the form at
