Competition to mark 25 years of Open Studies at Warwick

Open Studies at the University of Warwick is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and students old and new are being asked to design a logo to mark the occasion. 

The Open Studies programme has been running since 1984. Over the years the programme has offered courses in Coventry, Leamington, Stratford, Nuneaton and Solihull, and students have ranged in age from 16 to 96. 

There are a diverse range of courses that people can take for pleasure or career progression. Many people use the certificates offered as credit for a part-time degree. 

Kay McEvoy from the University’s Centre for Lifelong Learning said: “To prepare for the 25th anniversary of our Open Studies courses, we are looking for a logo that shows how much people have got out of Open Studies over the years. We have had so many great stories of students who have achieved so much and we want to celebrate that.” 

The logo must be 4cms by 4cms and all entries should be submitted by 13 July, 2009. The winning logo will be used on the Open Studies web pages, the 2009/10 Open Studies brochures and publicity for the event.

 In addition, the winning designer will also receive a £20 Bar Fusion voucher, £20 book token and two cinema tickets for the Warwick Arts Centre.
