Get involved with OU student consultation in March 2022

  • At the meetings, we’ll be asking for your input on a few different questions relating to your experience as a student. We’ll be asking you to consider what are the most challenging points in your studies, and how they can be overcome – perhaps through support you welcome or would like to see from the OU, or maybe through techniques you have developed yourself.

    Since March 2020, the university has had to change its approach and has been facilitating remote exams. This is a very different experience and provides an opportunity to think about how exams are taken in the future. Whether you have experienced an OU exam or not, your feedback and thoughts on the delivery of end of module assessments and exams will influence how this is done in the future.

    The final session will be hosted by the Open University Students Association and is an opportunity to talk further with student representatives about the consultations and to find out more about the Association’s work, as well as other opportunities to get involved.

    A summary of the feedback you give will be reviewed by senior staff in the University, informing them on how best to make improvements to your study experience and support you in achieving your goals.
