Sorry if this has already been asked about - I couldn't see a topic for it.....
Anyway, has anyone ever done studying through the Open University? I've just registered and paid for what will hopefully be my first class towards a History degree.
If anyone has studied with the OU, how did you find it? Did you enjoy it?

He occasionally has to go and take exams, but basically he can choose which exam time he takes them.
Not sure if it's the same with an undergraduate degree - but good luck with it all.

I'm starting my first level of a History course (the History of Science, Technology and Medicine). I'm feeling quite nervous and excited for it, especially as I'm used to being at Uni where you have a timetable telling you when and where you're supposed to be studying. I've not got that for this. It's all on my shoulders!

This week has just been our introduction week, you make sure that you can communicate okay with your tutor, find your way around the forums and that you've got the books all organised. Our first unit is on 'Reputations' of people in different fields (History, Science, Art, Literature, etc.) so we were asked to think of people who we might have liked to include in the course for study. I chose Elizabeth the First and linked her to Cleopatra (who is the first person we study) and was very pleased when people agreed with me
I think if you were to do the English degree the first level course might be the one I'm doing now (AA100), I'm not too sure about how I'll find some aspects - analysing a section of Doctor Faustus - Ack! - but I'm definitely enjoying it at the moment.

I've read the online prospectus and it sounds fab - I originally was just going to do the Diploma in Creative Writing and Literature, but figured if I was going to do that I might aswell try and do the whole degree.......we'll see how far I get, I'll do the diploma and go from there.....
At least doing it with your Dad you have someone to bounce off - might help you with the discipline as well.....you'll have to keep me informed how it goes so I know what to expect!!!!
