In March 2020, The Open University updated its Advocacy Policy. This document was completely rewritten to ensure clarity of the procedure and to match the current policy template.
This policy describes how The Open University enables a student to be represented by someone else on their behalf, called an Advocate, for times when a student is unable or unavailable to represent themselves.
Please talk to your Student Support Team if you need any further information. You can find out how to contact them on Contact the OU.
