We showcase the exciting new range of modules and qualifications being launched by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in October 2020. Two major interdisciplinary Level 1 Arts modules, Cultures and Revolutions launch this year, bringing a whole range of new study choices to students in the early stages of their degree. At Level 2 there are new modules in subjects as diverse as music, counselling and economics. Those progressing to Level 3 will be able to access a new criminology module and there are two global development modules at postgraduate level for those thinking of progressing even further to a Masters degree in this increasingly important field. We’ll also discuss two brand new qualifications in the fields of art history and visual cultures, and geography.

Did you know that 86% of graduate employers are more interested in a potential employee’s qualities and skills than the subject they studied? Perhaps the COVID-19 pandemic is changing your plans for the future or you’d like to know what employers are saying about where things go from here. There are existing roles and ones yet to be created that could perfectly match your passions and talents… but how do you find out what they are? Get started, and broaden your horizons in this varied half-day programme. Students from all faculties, courses and qualifications are invited to join faculty guests and OU career consultants to investigate four themes: people-focused careers; innovation and entrepreneurship; how digital technology is transforming the world of work; and education sector roles. There will also be short, “in a nutshell” career-confident skills sessions covering CVs, assessment centres, interviews and tools to help plan your future.

Please note that this event is scheduled to start at 9:30am and will run until 12:30pm. Book a free ticket to attend on OpportunityHub.

Recordings of the sessions will be available shortly after this live event.

The practice of self-care doesn’t have to involve a day out at the spa or any kind if grand gesture. In fact, wellbeing can found in momentary interactions and a deeper understanding of what really nourishes us as an individual. In this workshop Jeni Sanderson will share the science of why it’s important to take notice and care of your emotions, and guide you to explore what you can do to boost performance, productivity and wellbeing.

Distance learning can be an ideal way to spend time right now, and while some of the world has changed beyond recognition, for many OU students studying has been relatively consistent. Apart from things like changes in work, home schooling, a lack of social contact and many other challenges. At our SHL online social event we’ll have the opportunity to talk to other OU students about how we’ve found all these changes, and suggest ways that we’ve discovered new things. Guests will include Mike Batham who will tell us how he made sanitiser for Milton Keynes hospital and Jeni Sanderson, a life coach, who will explain why we can struggle at times like this and suggest ways we can turn some of the negatives into positives.

This live, online and interactive event is a fun way to meet other students. Log in from the comfort of your own home to view the event, chat with other students and participate in our studio panel’s discussions. 

Please note that this event is scheduled to start at 11:00am and will run until 11:45am. Register your interest for this free event here.
