Re: Acceptance of distance learning (response to post by AlexB) | Reply
I have no personal experience of using an Open University degree in a CV, but my general feeling from looking at the Open University forums, I would say the majority of students have positive experiences. Many employers seem to appreciate the extra commitment required to complete a distance degree, particularly since most people are doing it at the same time as working/bringing up children/etc, as well as valuing the quality of the degree.

There are still employers out there that do not seem to think an OU degree is worth as much as a brick university degree though :-(

Things to bear in mind if you would be studying in Germany: tutorial support tends to be more limited (fewer students, longer distances compared to UK students) as well as the cost due to funding differences.
