About AOUG

The Association of Open University Graduates is an international organisation established by the OU and new Graduates in 1988. It is an independent organisation and an incorporated body under the Companies Acts, with a democratically elected Executive Committee comprising, where possible, five Officers and twelve Representatives from each of the University’s Regions and Nations. There are also members in Europe and the Rest of the World.

Although AOUG was set up for graduates of the OU we now welcome current students as Associate Members and friends and family members can be nominated by an existing full member.

Members meet regularly and enjoy a wide variety of educational, social and outdoor events. Further information on these can be found in the Regions and Nations section. Three times a year each member receives the Association’s magazine OMEGA. This covers Open University issues, academic articles, items by, and about, graduates and in-depth news of the Regions and Nations. We warmly welcome new members and you can join online using our secure membership form.
