Join the OU Students Association and the OU in Scotland as we host an in-person meet-up as part of Freshers Fortnight. Meet with your peers at the OU in Scotland offices in Edinburgh whilst finding out more about the OU Students Association and the OU in Scotland. There will be opportunities to mingle with others whilst taking part in structured sessions that will show that distance learning does not have to be distant!

Due to venue capacity limits, this event will be ticketed, with tickets given on a first-come-first-served basis until we reach our limit. We will be unable to allow students without tickets access to the event. If there is a high demand for this event, we may consider also holding an afternoon session therefore, we would encourage you to join the waiting list to help us understand the demand for this event.

Access to the room used for the event will be on the first floor and will be accessible by stairs and a lift.

Please note that photography and filming will take place at this event. If you wish to opt-out, please make a member of OU staff aware upon entry.

If you have any questions about the event, please get in touch with us at

We look forward to seeing you there!
