I think Cait did this course last time around.....maybe she could give you some pointers?


I just got my first TMA back. 72%.

I'm not sure if this is good or not, but it's made me happy!!

Just thought I'd get in on the fun! biggrin.gif

I'm currently studying with the OU. I'm doing a BA (Hons) in History and am currently in my 5th year. One more year to go after this!! Can't wait but I do completely love studying, sad as that sounds. What I think I'm looking forward to is having my weekends and evenings back. It really is very demanding, especially at a Level 3 course (which is what I'm doing) I also work full time and it is very knackering, coming home and then spending all night studying. Weekends also tend to be taken up with it, and the reading you're expected to do is quite full-on.

But- I would recommend it. It's addictive, fun, inspiring and you learn loads of new things. You definitely definitely do have to be motivated because there isn't anyone there to make you do it or do it for you!!! biggrin.gif

I'm just getting into mine now, does MST121 and MS221, Exploring and Using Maths. Really good but I'm struggling with the motivation thing, I can so easily find a hundred other things to do and then before I know it, my assignment is due in in 3 days! Any tips?

I've been looking at different lines of work today and I thought about this as my mum did it years ago. I've just had a browse around on the net and I can't believe the cost of the courses! :o Do you have to do more than one course? There's online courses that last only 10 - 15 weeks and i've found the perfect one that seems really interesting but i'm not sure what good it would do for me job-wise....so I don't know if it'd be worth it?!

Do you get any funding for doing a Post Grad through the OU? My sister is doing her degree through the OU and doesn't have to pay anything.

Just thought I'd bring this topic back into existence again as I'm starting a Humanities degree with The OU next month... I'm starting off with AA100, I've already started reading books for it & listening to some audio. Can't wait to properly start it now! At the moment I'm thinking I'd quite like to specialise in English Lit & Art History in years 2&3 (as long as earlier modules don't change my mind - Classics is another area I've considered.) Is anyone else starting a degree/course with them this year?  ^_^
