Anyone with experience of LSE Uni's external programme? Thinking of a degree change.

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has any experience of LSE or, more specifically, its external (distance learning) programme.

I'm thinking (only thinking) of applying to change from my OU BSc in mathematics to LSE's BSc in mathematics and economics or even economics and finance.

I can't fault the OU's course material TBH but I think either of the LSE degrees would open far more doors since, well, it's LSE.

But I have no idea how well presented the course material is and how access to tutors works - yes, the uni will tell me but I was hoping for insight from anyone that has made use of LSE's external programme.

Thanks.

    I studied at the LSE, but 'twas 25 years ago, so probably not much use to you.

    TBH, I think the OU course material is some of the most thorough Ive come across, at least as regards undergrad courses

    Dunno mate - the courses I've done with the OU fully satisfy their mature student entry requirements for distance learning so maybe it's possible. Or maybe they just throw them onto the fire. No idea.

    Agree mate but the name still doesn't carry the weight it might.

    possibly not - shame really.

    Ive studied psychology modules with both, and OU was harder (in the sense of being more thorough and demanding) IMO
