To celebrate this landmark year, the OU will be shining a light on its world class academics, who are at the forefront of ground-breaking research. The OU was revolutionary 50 years ago, and is still very much a world leader in distance learning and pioneering research today.
Our Managing Partner is an OU Alumnus and continues to support learners whenever possible.
