Open University Students Association

The Organisation

The Open University Students Association is the largest Students Association in the UK serving the interests of over 170,000 part-time students spread across the UK, Europe and beyond. Our job is to represent the interests of this vast and extremely diverse body of students. Whilst we operate within a world-class University, we are not governed by the OU. The OU Students Association is an independent organisation, a registered charity in its own right, run by elected student leaders. Our team of dedicated, professional staff provide the vital support needed to deliver excellent services across the breadth of our student population.


The Open University Students Association is committed to Equal Opportunities in education and employment and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
