Hello, fellow crustaceans,
after giving up on my studies a few years ago, lately I’ve been thinking about getting back in the game. I have several options ranging from simply going back and continuing my previous studies to applying to a completely different university.
Recently I’ve been reading more and more about various distance learning options, and they seem fairly interesting. In Europe, The Open University seems like one of the larger providers of the sort. It’s not cheap, but it seems like a well regarded institution.
Does anyone have any experience with a pursuit like this? Any tips, tricks, warnings or recommendations? How do people look at an “online degree” when applying for graduate or postgraduate studies? For what it’s worth, I’m interested in a BSc in Physics, but any experience will be of help.
