This hub has been developed by The Open University in collaboration with The Russell Group to support students get off to a great start at their new university or college.

Whether you’re about to move on to university, or if you’re supporting someone who is – perhaps as a parent, teacher, carer or adviser, this hub can help you.

You can search by topic – like study skillswellbeing and mental health, or student life – and by subject area to get access to the resources you need.

It doesn’t matter which university you’re going to, or even if you haven’t made your mind up yet – you can use all of the resources on our hub to find out more about university life and study.

Take a look around and explore all of the different support on offer.

Moving on to university is a big step, but it needn’t be a scary one. This hub will help you prepare for university with confidence and give you a clearer picture of what your new life at university might look like.
