Use your clubcard vouchers to reduce open uni fees.
£10 in clubcard vouchers = £40 discount from your course fees.

Moved to deals, this is not a voucher in and of itself. Thanks :)

Although these Deal Tokens are applicable for new registrations only, I'm really impressed with the OU for offering this. As they say, "learn something new and feed your mind".

This is a brilliant deal - but having completed a few MSc modules I would suggest there should be a forum where you can put comments about the competence of your tutor.

Some are helpful and know their stuff - others don't seem to have a clue - and waffle to compensate.

This old saying is so true.

Those who can do - and those who cannot - teach.

Sadly some who cannot even teach - work for the OU.

But at least its not like normal university where its the ones you sl*g off are also marking your papers.

Clubcard points into pounds is a good deal, i am sure it has been posted somewhere on this site, when the site started. I don't think it is necessary to be listing every individual clubcard deal.

I wonder why these types of deals get posted sometimes, this particular offer has been on with Tesco for about a year already. It is no more of a deal then any of the other clubcard deals. I could understand it being 'a deal' if it was advertised as something new or different, i.e. £1 clubcard points = £6 open uni vouchers, but it isn't.

fantastic spot!!!

That maybe, but I am considering using the OU and have stacks of clubcard vouchers and I wasn't aware of the deal. I also wouldn't have thought to have checked...

So hot hot hot from me :thumbsup: :-D

I tutor for the OU - I'm not sure if I fall into 'helpful and know my stuff' or 'waffle and compensate' group ;-)

At the end of most courses there is now an automatic request for student feedback (although I'm not sure this applies to masters courses, or just undergraduate), so most students do get asked to comment about the quality of teaching.

If you don't get asked for your opinion, and you are unhappy with the quality of teaching - phone the regional centre and ask to speak to the Staff Tutor for your course. Tell them exactly what you think. (presuming you have already approached the tutor and given them a chance to modify what they do, or explain why they do what they do)

[SIZE="2"]Another general comment, don't forget that the Open University may even FULLY PAY for your course fees, if you are on a low income or have a disability.
So you can save your Tescos vouchers! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

According to the details on the website, household incomes can be up to £30k or higher, and you still qualify for help with fees etc. And students with disabilities can have an allowance regardless of household income.

Details are here:

Disbaled Students Allowance link: http://www.open.ac.uk/disability/pages/funding/dsa-funding.php[/SIZE]

Happy studying :)

New registrations? Surely every time you take a new course you have to register for it afresh? Do you mean applicable for your first course only? If I choose my next masters module it's a new registration under an existing student id.

MelissaB, how do you become an OU Tutor? I would quite like to have a go when I complete my Masters, I did a PGCE although I don't teach now. Do you do tutor part time at the same time as being a trailer park ho?

It is for new registrations of a module, regardless of how long you've already been a student. Coincidentally we called up this morning to check.

It is worth noting that you need to register online for the module first (even though the Tesco deals site leads you to believe you have to send the vouchers with the registration form).

You then get a choice to print out or receive in the post some paperwork - including the application for help with funding if you've ticked that box.

When you send the funding application back, you then have to wait for them to come back and tell you what, if any, funding you'll get and how much money is outstanding on the module you want to do.

Order the right amount of clubcard deals vouchers, in your name (I think spouse's name when cards are linked is fine too, but forgot to double check)

You can then send back the confirmation information to the OU with the balance of your payment in vouchers.

So, all in all, it might be quite a lengthy process - start as soon as you can if you know what course you want to do!

This deal is so hot it's steaming from both ends. Fantastic. Undergrad only but that's OK. I can do another one!
#14
I would also like to remind the lucky folk living in Scotland, you can get an ILA of up to £200 per year which may be used against your modules, this is a little trickier as only some courses qualify and then they can be restricted more. But check the site to see if / how much you can get and which courses qualify. Also usable for courses outside of Open Uni.
#15
Surprised this has only just been posted. They have been doing this for over a year now! We will get posts for using your vouchers at Bella Italia next! :)

Hot from me. Yes Clubcard deals are for tons of things, but this is the kind of deal many people wouldnt be aware of.

Have a look here for vacancies, then read up the general and specific person requirements, and see if you match:
http://www3.open.ac.uk/employment/associate-lecturers/main_1.shtm

I started with a summer school, maybe that would suit you too? It's a great way to work out whether teaching at the OU suits you, without too much commitment.

Finally, yes, I tutor part-time. I also manage to fit in a full-time job, being a new mum, and also a trailer park ho, which is my most demanding role :whistling:

Good luck to you

thanks for the reminder, I've already done 2 post grad courses and didn't know about the ILA then and now that I should be getting my behind in gear and thinking about my next course I probably would have forgotten about the ILA again!

Will also check up the tesco voucher thing when I do get round to it - something I wasn't aware of

Not only do employers like people with OU degrees (self motivated, disciplined, good time managers) many will also pay to help their people study with the OU.

Whys everyone so snarky? :thinking:

I wouldn't have thought you could use clubcard vouchers to pay for OU courses so thanks vinnyabdn :thumbsup:

Hi,
I know this probably isn't the place to talk about this but there seems to be a few people who know what they are talking about.

How does the points system work with the OU? I haven't done anything like this before but am interested in starting. I'll be honest I'm not sure what course to take at the moment.

Thanks for any comments.

Ooh! There's a short question with a long answer. I'll have a go.


You can get an undergrad Open degree by choosing a selection of course in unrelated subjects for a total of 300 points.

The points are spread between levels, usually 1, 2 or 3 getting progressively more advanced.

The Open degree is not in a particular subject or career area.

You can take an undergrad honours degree for a particular subject area, which is 360 points. For this you must pass courses from a choice of related subjects. They are spread across levels 1, 2 and 3. So, you might need 90 at level 1, 150 at level 2 and 120 at level 3.

The average course gives 30 points, but there are others that do 60 points or 15 or 10.

My courses normally runs from Jan/Feb up to the exam in October.

You can take several courses at once. I once did 90 points in one year, some do more than that but it's hard work.

They also do diplomas and other certificates but I don't know about them.

You can do postgrad studies such as masters, MBAs and PGCE.

It's really good fun! Lots of social stuff, loads of onlines communities, face to face study days.

That'll do for a start. There's much more on their website as http://www.open.ac.uk

I completed my whole Business Studies degree with the OU and I would highly recommend them to anyone - even if you don't qualify for subsidised fees. As I now own my own business I would say it was certainly extremely beneficial for me, and I learnt just as much as going to a full time university, and my degree with the OU helped me get a business loan which I had been turned down on previously, so it seems to me to be a respected institution by those in the business sector.
