To ensure you get the correct support, we have listed a variety of resources for you to browse through. These include Peer Support, study skills support from other OU Students; Shout, a listening ear for when you are feeling distressed and just need someone to talk to if you are feeling alone; and The Open University Students Educational Trust (Students Charity) in case you require financial support and all other options have been exhausted. Our ‘Wellbeing’ section also features tips on how to overcome stress and resources on maintaining a positive mental wellbeing.
If you are looking for something a bit more long term, then we have three wonderful support groups run by students for students. Scroll down to find our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Student Group, OU Pride (LGBTQI+ Group) and our Disabled Students Group, all of which have work to support their members.
