    Default Studying with the Open University



    Hi guys, been a while since I've posted.
    How is everyone anyway?

    Right, I've applied to study with the open university, doing a course called Exploring Science S104. This level 1 module looks at all parts of science and then level 2 takes you into your chosen field, mine will be Astronomy and Planatery Science. This will eventually give me a BSc in Natural Science.


    Just wondering if anyone has studied with the Open university and what ther experience was?

    Yep, I did an MSc (in computing) with them about 10 years back. It was good! The course packs they sent out were generally excellent, and there was always a tutor on call when I got stuck. The only downside is you miss the social side of being a student, but if you're working full time that's not really an option anyway.
