OpenPlus Fees

November 30, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Well I have just recently found out about how the fee system will work for OpenPlus students.

If you started before 2012 at The Open University, fees will stay the same and not increase (for The Open University). If you start in/after 2012 then you will start with the new fees by default.

However, once you transfer to your full-time university you will start paying the new higher fees regardless of whichever fee system you were in. This is because they claim that you are changing from part-time studies to full-time and are classified as a “new student”.

This is official and can be found here:

So, this is one piece of news that I wish were different. Now I will be stuck with a damn debt nearing £50,000.00 at the end of my studies… great.

    Glancing at your blog and seeing your interests you might like to check out the program Sagemath. It is an open source alternative to maths programs like matlab and maple.

    I will give Sagemath a try, looks very good! Thanks 🙂
