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!

Our next Freshers will be from Tuesday 25 January – Sunday 6 February 2022. We're looking forward to welcoming you with a fortnight of online events and prize draws & competitions. In fact, you can join us in counting down to when it will begin!
