Fair enough. I am aware you need to do paid courses to get an official OU …Fair enough. I am aware you need to do paid courses to get an official OU address. Just keep in mind that a lot of universities do 'taster' courses, and your post notes explicitly that these courses might be good for people considering enrolling in a proper uni:"On the other hand, great way to learn some new exciting subjects or to test the waters for a particular subject that you've been thinking of enrolling for in a proper Uni?"No matter which way you slice it, you are excluding the OU from this term.


That meant (& I quote from Simplified English for Dummies) =

PART A: On the other hand, great way to learn some new exciting subjects - Join one of these free courses or take a paid full course in OU

PART B: or to test the waters for a particular subject that you've been thinking of enrolling for in a proper Uni? - If you want to enroll in a physical university for some reason and NOT in OU, then you can take a particular subject on the OU (in one of these free courses) to see if you really like it and it's worth doing a complete course/degree or whatever else you have in mind, in a physical university (which has classes, students, teachers, white board, computers, ceilings etc all present physically in the classroom). Choice is yours.

I'm not sure what typical PhD fees are. My programme is fully funded, which I have learned is relatively rare. One of the things that made me competitive was the nature of my OU degree.

I am a a psychology graduate, but I'm doing my PhD in the faculty of Health Sciences, which will make use of health, sociology, healthy psychology, and social psychology.

Hi all, I need a bit of advice, I'm 45 years old & I left school without …Hi all, I need a bit of advice, I'm 45 years old & I left school without any qualifications, and I've been working as an order picker for the past 11 years. Can anybody recommend any courses? I'm quite good on my home computer and I need a change , better now than never, thank you & have a nice bank holiday x


Trying to give you meaningful advice is going to be difficult. You have an edge in that you are clearly literate. What you don't know is how you will take to formal study. Luckily, there are a lot of free level 2 courses out there that can be completed in a few months - and I would suggest this is a good place to start. If you do one of those by supported distance learning and a part time non vocational course cheaply at your local college you will soon work out your learning preferences. As for home computing: You can pick up an ECDL course from somewhere like Groupon cheaply. This is the basic qualification for working out how computer networks are used in offices and industry. The joy of living today is that you can learn anything. The sadness is that without experience it counts for nought
Is anyone else getting '...unfortunately this service is unavailable at the moment. Please try again later. In the meantime why not explore our courses. ' when trying to sign up for an account and a course?
Useful thread. :-)

It kind of went against part of their ethos for me, in the sense of making degree level education open to all. Doubling your module fees is a bit of a contradiction to my mind.I used to like watching the odd programme at weekends on BBC2, whether it was Maths, Chemistry, History, etc. Shame they're not there any more.


Amen to all that ...

You are more deluded than Jeremy himself, although he was honest enough recently to admit this wasn't possible realistically.
Wouldn't it be a lovely and amazing world if someone else paid our uni, our mortgages, our train tickets possibly even supermarket shopping.

seanjames

these will look good in the cells of most open university students



I don't know much about prison inmates but I doubt any of them will be studying. If they do, it will be a very small number.

I am not a fan of self learning so I think it is very difficult to do distance learning through the open university unless you have a lot of self discipline.

I would be interested to know if employers value open university degrees when it comes to employing graduates. I have never worked with anyone who is a graduate from the open university.
