The Computing Department at the Open University is a large and expanding department. Each year over 8,000 students take undergraduate courses and 4,500 students take postgraduate courses in computing developed by the Department. The Open University admitted its first students in 1971. It is the UK's largest university, with over 200,000 students and customers in 1997/98. The OU represents 21% of all part-time higher education students in the UK.

The department is experienced in running international conferences such as the conference that was held at the Open University in December 1998 on "Architectural Approaches to Software Engineering: Frameworks, Patterns, Components and Architectures".


The Open University campus is situated in South-Eastern Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, UK. This is close to the main M1 motorway, approximately 40 miles north of London. It is also approximately half way between Oxford and Cambridge and gives easy access to areas of interest such as Stratford and Warwick.

Milton Keynes is served by Milton Keynes Central railway station about 4 miles (6 kilometres) from the OU campus. There are direct rail links to London (Euston), Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow with services run by Virgin West Coast, Connex South-Central and Silverlink Trains. Trains are frequent with journey times to London of between 40 and 80 minutes. Taxis operate within the town, the main rank is outside Milton Keynes Central railway station. The fare is approximately £6:00 each way between the town and the campus.
