Freshers is an exciting time as we say hello to new students and welcome back returning OU students.

We realise that starting your studies can be both daunting and exciting at the same time, and Freshers is a great chance to learn more about studying with the OU, find out how your Students Association can support you through your academic journey and, of course, meet other OU students!

You can learn more about Freshers at the Association by reading our "All About... Freshers" article on The Hoot. 

Our next Freshers will be 26 September – 9 October 2022. We're looking forward to welcoming you with a fortnight of online events and prize draws & competitions.
