Over the years, The Open University has distributed many free booklets, information guides and posters. On this page, you can find a selection of their latest offerings, all free of charge and ready to order.
These free print items cover a wide variety of topics, including astronomy, history, nature, medical, modern life, and other areas. Although they are intended for educational purposes, anyone can order and discover more about a particular subject. The Open University may include additional information on their courses when dispatching your freebie.
Some of the popular print guides include: “The First World War Experienced” booklet – an eye-opening look at Britain’s Great War. “Working to save lives” is another fascinating free booklet that takes a look behind the scenes of the National Health Service. Free mathematical puzzles are available for number crunchers, plus you’ll find free recipe guides and a free Empire poster – a large poster detailing the extent of the British empire at its largest point in history.
