About Jumpstart University

Updated Thursday, 19th August 2021

Free resources from The Open University curated with the Russell Group to help you take your first steps to university

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.
