About Us

For OU students with rising years but 'young at heart' (40+). This group has been set up for older OU students that do not fit into the 'normal' age range of a student!

If you are 40+ and would like to help a friendly and relaxed community of students with the ever-increasing years of life experiences, this group may be for you! It may have been many years since you attended school or college – you may be upgrading your skills, changing your career path or you are a lifelong learner, studying because you can! This group aims to give all members a place of support and community – a place to talk to others who are studying with The OU and are ‘young at heart’, even if they are not young in age.
