A friend of mine has been studying for a BA with the OU and she's said she's had to give it 12hrs a week. I'm not sure I could give it that much time right now because of my health, but I'd like to hope that maybe next year that would change. I'm not sure what the application process would be like, or even what kind of funding options I'd have open to me if I was doing a OU course, and what kind of resources I'd have available (i.e. if I didn't have access to research databases and such it would make doing an MA disertation very very difficult).
Any info about OU study would be really helpful!
