Tell us your OU in Wales story

Whether you were one of our first students or you're still in the middle of your studies, we want to hear your OU in Wales story.

We want to encourage more people across Wales to start their learning journey with us, so we may be back in touch to ask if we can use your story on our website, social media work, or advertising. Don't worry - we won't use anything without contacting you for permission first.

You can ask us to remove your story and your details from our list at any time, we’ll keep your data safe, and we won’t pass it on to anyone else.

You can read our privacy page for more information.
