Open University degree courses are generally good, and taking individual
courses for which you have the pre-requisites as an associate student
can be good. But remember it is hard work. You need self-discipline as
most of the work is on your own. Yes there are online tutors and there
are regular meetings with tutors, but you have to keep the rhythm going.

Open University courses tend though to be slightly behind in the
technology presented. This is because creating, auditing and certifying
a course is a lengthy business. Courses are updated after each
presentation so the problem is not as bad as it could be. Indeed for
some infelicities changes get made without going through the full audit
cycle, as long as the external reviewers and external examiners are
