To round off our freshers events we want to have a little fun … it is Friday night after all!

We are going to be looking at hobbies and how they can really help to keep you going when studying, as well as giving you an outlet! Study buddies are a Student Hub Live favourite, especially the four-legged varieties, and we will be meeting some of them too. We will be looking for lots of sharing of ideas from you too – so, if you’re a baker, send us a photo of your creations and, if you make other things, please share them too!

Study buddy photos are always welcome. Rumour has it we may even have a guest knight in shining armour!

So you’re embarking on your OU study journey – how exciting! At Student Hub Live we want to welcome you to the Open University and give you some tips to get you off to a flying start.

In this session you’ll find out what being an OU student involves and some of the many rewards. You’ll also hear from others about their best tips including some they wish they had known. Just like when you go to ‘big school’ or start a new job and get faced with loads of similar doors and corridors, we will give a whistlestop tour of the key places you need to know and provide lots of ideas about where to look next.

Oh, and did we forget to say we will welcome you to the Student Hub Live community, maybe with a bit of chocolate talk?!
