Student Association Vice President voices the OU student journey at the House of Lords.

The Vice President for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at the Students Association attended an evidence session at the House of Lords in July this year.

Natalie Baker spoke on behalf of Open University students at the Higher Education Commission session on the topic of ‘blended learning’ which included contributions from students from universities across England.

The session covered of a range of topics that impact accessibility, and the issues that students are facing that effect their ability to engage with study.

This opportunity gave Natalie the time and space to voice the OU student experience.

Natalie noted “it was great to be a part of the conversation on how learning can be future proofed and always open and accessible for everyone”.

The OU Students Association and the OU continue to work closely together to ensure that OU students’ voices are heard in the wider higher education sector, and across the institutions of our four nations.
