The Open University prides itself on being open to everyone, and an important part is making sure that everyone has the best chance of success; this means we must provide opportunities for all of our students to prepare for being a successful OU student. Over 4,000 students chose to start with one of our three Access modules last year. Now the Access team have produced an animation that will support students who are lacking in confidence, don’t have positive memories of formal learning or perhaps just want a gentler start to their OU qualification.
According to student feedback, many of our students find their experience on completing Access modules changes their sense of themselves and propels them into a love of life-long learning.
So, if you know anyone that is thinking of studying with the OU, but is nervous or anxious for any reason, please share this short animation with them!
