    It will be asked. 
    No you don't qualify for student discounts just because you take a course

    I really enjoyed studying at OU. It was life-changing.

    Me too. I’ve studied in a few places but I’d rate the OU highest. I got my first undergrad degree there 30 years ago. Did one of these taster type courses (mooc) a few years ago and ended up doing another degree with them. Graduated 2 years ago. Really great quality of learning materials imho.

    Genuinely a great resource and a great way to sample subject before committing more fully. The courses around mental health are great general knowledge too.

    Thanks for this, been looking at a career change and with these entry level courses can give me an idea whether the subject is for me or not.

    Anything worth doing IT related?

    I got my degree from the OU in IT. I highly rate the OU and what it did for me. I didn't follow a specialisation, but rather, I picked lots of different modules so I could identify which area of IT was best for me.

    Although I've not seen these particular modules, I can assure you that the content will be of good quality!

    Bias is a thing in many academic courses, especially the social sciences.

    Is entry level a level 3 a level equivalent? And is it recognised in other universities?

    This is great. I've been trying to switch careers and it's proved more challenging than I thought. Can anyone recommend any courses related to design and real estate?

    Free material but not free degree linked courses. Studying on the OU is so expensive nowadays
