There’s still time to give the gift of lifelong learning

With Christmas rapidly approaching and everyone on the hunt for the perfect gift, The Open University has solved the problem by introducing the gift that keeps on giving.
Open University gift vouchers can be used as full or part payment for any of the University’s courses in subject areas as diverse as computing and ICT, business, health and social care, social sciences, arts and humanities.
Available in denominations of £10, £20, £50 and £100 the vouchers can be used on any one of the 580 courses currently available through the UK’s largest university.
“The vouchers may inspire someone to learn a new language, or study a subject that’s always interested them,” said Jo Stetzel, project manager for the gift voucher scheme.
“Additionally, they make the perfect present for someone who has already embarked on their OU studies, as vouchers can be put towards existing course fees,” she said.
“Most people want to find something personal and unique to buy for their friends and family; gifts that endure beyond the end of the Christmas break.
“What better than a gift which has the potential to change and improve your life?
“Undertaking a course with The Open University, whatever the level, is a truly alternative gift that will last long after the needles have fallen from the Christmas tree.”
