I’ve just been made aware of a great site that has only recently been set up. It’s for students who are studying or are thinking of studying at the OU outside of the UK and Ireland. If you fit the bill, the website is at open university.edu.
If you’ve read any of my other posts, you’ll know that amidst the moaning, I am a big, BIG fan of the Open University. It helped me finish my degree when my lack of funds was preventing me from going back to a more traditional uni.
Carrying on in the spirit of distance learning, I’ve signed up for some courses from Coursera and FutureLearn (FutureLearn is wholly owned by the OU so you know it’s gotta be good). I have been indulging in my love for history on FutureLearn and anthropology on Coursera. But now I’m working, I’m finding it very hard work. It’s hard to pluck up the motivation. And that just made me want to give a big shout out to all those people who study with the OU whilst managing a family and/or a full-time job: you guys are machines. Serious respect!
I’m still good, by the way. Working as a copywriter which I love 🙂 I know I don’t update much as I want to keep this blog a resource for people looking to study with the OU and I don’t want to clog it up with my ramblings! If you’re interested in my life, cheek out my personal blog over yonder (although I am terrible at updating this too!)
