    my dad is a part-time lecturer for the OU. From what I've gathered, you choose your subject and attend various tutorials which are held maybe weekly or monthly, in the evenings. You do all your study at home, but you can contact your tutors whenever you want by email, phone or post. you have to do various tutor-marked assessments (at least you do for my dad's course), and I'm not sure if you have to sit any exams.

    i think it's a good option though, if you want to work and study at the same time.

    How about writing to the television company where you noticed the open university thing and asking them? good luck in your pursuit. Hope all goes well for you.

    You do realise you have to pay to study with the OU, so I hope you have some savings or a job?

    You won't qualify for a student loan either, which is a damn shame otherwise I wouldv'e given up uni ages ago!

    It's a pain that when you hit a certain age that you have to start paying to be educated. Who ever thought of that idea? grrrrrrrr!!
