As some of you would have noticed recently I often contemplate a career change, well at least something different I guess, man of many 'skills' me, but crap at most, .
I guess I'm not really looking for a career change, rather to become a bit more knowledgeable in certain things that I truly love, my thoughts so far are Ichthyology, Entomology, Marine Biology or a very basic Psychology course.
I only ask about the Open University because I am unable to leave the home for any lengthy period of time, , and I think the costs 'may' be slightly less than a 'traditional' uni.
As I said, it's not so much a 'degree' status I am looking for, more to arm myself with more knowledge about certain subjects and really enjoy, I love learning and 'think' I may enjoy it.
Also is the fact that I didn't do brilliantly at school, unless the lessons were Geography or Saltwater Flyfishing I to my shame rarely was as studious as I could have been, , so I guess I am a bit dim when it may come to entrance requirements,.
I have been online reading reviews etc, but I trust you lot more than a total stranger giving their opinion so would really appreciate the pro's and con's of the Open University.
EDITED TO ADD. I only ask as you will notice the subjects I have chosen could be very useful in OZ (and are OZ related in a way) when I finally get back and may come in handy if I ever have the time to pursue them when in Australia.
