Freedom-of-Information, Open University

Dear Gurpreet,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request.

The Open University is a world leader in modern distance learning, the pioneer of teaching and learning methods which enable people to achieve their career and life goals studying at times and in places to suit them. Our students do not attend a campus (apart from a small number Research students who are based on our Milton Keynes site). They live in their own homes throughout the UK and in many other countries throughout the world. Therefore we do not provide support or advice service for students with a gambling addiction as we would expect them to use support networks and services in their own community. Therefore we don’t have any information to answer to your request.

I am sorry that we are unable to help on this occasion, but should you have any further questions please contact this office or our Media Relations team (email [email address]).

Kind Regards
Mel
