    It can be quite expensive if you are taking certain kinds of courses, and the unit credits can be confusing to add up. It can also be easy to just "forget" about the work you need to do until the last minute because you rely on your own willpower.

    However, you can learn at your own pace and there is full suport available.

    I am doing two distance learning courses right now (not OU but similar).
