Open up the Future

Open up the Future

Where you start in life shouldn't limit where you go. We believe that education should be open to everyone with the determination to change their lives. Join us in making the impossible possible for millions of learners.

If, like us, you believe that anyone can be anything, then together we can open up so many new futures. A hard-working mother can become a scientist, an African schoolboy living in poverty can learn to become an entrepreneur and a dog can become an expert at detecting cancer. And that’s why we have launched a bold new campaign to help build momentum for change.

The Open University has transformed millions of lives, but millions more remain to be unlocked. Yet today, national cuts in funding are a serious threat to those hard-won opportunities. It is time to spark our revolutionary spirit again, to share the gift of education with all who need it.

You can help offer scholarships to students who can’t afford to study, provide free online learning for everyone and support vital discoveries in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, dementia and stroke.

Join us in a new movement in learning for all who believe where you start in life shouldn’t limit where you can go. Together we can open up the future for everyone.
