Disadvantages: lack of tutor support
I have done part of my degree course by using the Open University. I'm afraid it has not been a good experiance. I found the lack of contact with other students quite hard and the tutors not very suportive. I was supposed to have tutorials once a month and they were often to far for me to travel too, changed at the last minute or cancelled at short notice. I found the marking of different tutors extremly different so it was sometimes difficult to know where you were going right or wrong. I would never recommend it to anyone but maybe a different course / career would be more suited to distance learning. I was doing a degree in early Education as I am a nursery manager but i know wish i had taken a course at a local university and maybe done a day release as i think i would of been more supported.
Summary: I wouldn't do it again
