This year the Open University celebrates its 50th anniversary. As a graduate of the Open University I am extremely proud that throughout the last fifty years, they have made it their mission to open up education for all.

The Open University is the largest UK academic institution, and they have empowered over two million students across 157 countries to transform their lives through learning – helping in some instances to make the impossible, possible.

It was great to go along to their celebration in Parliament and I would strongly recommend the Open University to anyone.
