Jamie graduated from The Open University (OU) in 2015 with a BA (Hons) in Modern Languages.

The adverts are running until March 2018 and tell the stories of six students who reaped the tangible benefits that studying can bring, even before they completed their qualifications and graduated.

Jamie says: “I always knew I wanted to study at university. Upon my return from Spain, I decided to do lots of research and the OU resonated with me above redbrick institutions due to the distance learning element - which meant that I could fit my studies around my life and continue working to develop my career.”
