I've done a bit of online learning before - I did a learndirect course in marketing last year. But obviously doing an entire degree online will take a lot more commitment. I hopefully will have the credits from my BSc Computer Science course I did at Queen's University Belfast for a year and a half, before leaving it to come over here, so hopefully that should leave less than 2years worth of fulltime course element to complete.
Does anyone have experience of fitting in distance learning to this level around work, family and running? (I don't have the family commitments myself being a single, but would be interesting to know). Can you tell me if you were able to keep motivated, and how much time per week roughly you spent going through the course materials?
How did you find the tutor support if needed?
Did you successfully complete and attain your degree?
How do employers view OU degrees vs normal bricks and mortar degrees?
I asked a lot of that in past tense, but if you are currently going through your degree, I'd be interested to hear from you as well.
Thankyou so much in anticipation for any advice and experience you guys are able to offer!
