Open University & Masters

Hi guys,

Just a quick question regarding Open University. I have just completed a Sports Science degree and am starting PE PGCE in September, I am looking to do a Master course and one on the Open University looked good. It would obviously take a few years as the modules are 60 credits each and the Masters requires 180, but it looks interesting looking at the modules I would be covering.
Anyone have any experience of them? How highly regarded are they? How heavy are the work loads?

Cheers

Del

    I did a OU degree. Modules are 60 points as you say.
    I always had a standard of getting the TMAs in on the due date no matter what. Good practise to follow.

    I think with the OU that it is a bit backward as everything depends on the exam. Have a bad day and you have wasted a year (and lots of money).


    Very expensive if not getting sponsored by work.

    Good luck whatever you decide.

    Thanks for your reply mate.

    Did you do Masters or Undergraduate? I am normally good at exams mate, and 2 of the modules I am looking at doing don't have them. How long did yours take to do?

    I wouldn't be getting sponsored, but Masters degree is £3k anyways so is no different, or might be cheaper if I can get some credits from my PGCE or Undergraduate studies.

    Cheers mate

    Bsc Honours. Mostly computing as work was paying initially.
    When I went contracting I diversifed into democracy/history as that was more what I was interested in.

    I finished mine about 6 years ago. Not enhanced my job prospects but I did not expect it to.

    Check out the status with the exams as I am sure it was about to change. More course-based assesment.
