OU reaches out to locals at Luton library


The Open University will be at Luton Library on Thursday from 9.30am until 5.00pm. A tutor will be available to answer questions about courses and learning methods. No appointments are necessary.

The Open University is offering people who are thinking of studying, the opportunity to be inspired by talking to tutors directly, in a relaxed and informal environment and to ask any questions they may have about studying with the OU. The event will be of most interest to those who have not studied with the OU before. It will provide an opportunity to find out more about the almost 200 qualifications that the OU offers; what is available in the Luton area; and how study can be fitted around work and family life.

More than 1000 people in the Luton area are already studying with The Open University, the UK’s largest university. Some are studying to improve career options, others to make up for lost educational opportunities and others simply to stretch the mind. With its national network of tutorials the OU has the flexibility to meet most needs. The short Access Module Certificate courses, for example, are ideal for those who have few formal qualifications or who have not studied for some time.
