What students said:
When I speak to the Open Universities people they help me straight away.
There’s a lot more help and a lot more services than I thought we be available to me and I think I’ve coped with it a lot better than I thought I would.
You’ve got to keep up with it and you’ve got to be organised but it’s not as hard in the regard that there’s assistance there and you’ve just got to look for it.
I thought I’d be under some stress but it hasn’t been too bad because I find that Open Universities is very helpful.
When I need to find something out and I can’t find it out just by looking on the website, then I’ll call them and ask them about it and they actually help me.
If I hadn’t had that support, you know, I think I would have dropped out because things were just so helter skelter here.
When you’re with Open Universities, you know, they email you a lot, they give you a lot of information about smart thinking and you have your study buddy so you always feel like you can at least try and get in contact with somebody who’s in the same boat as you.
