OpenPlus Fees

November 30, 2011 2 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.

Well, unfortunately I do not qualify for UK student prices nor any form of financial assistance (yet students from the EU do…) so I will be forced for this year to pay the full whack. I am hoping that this will change, due to the fact that I would have resided in the UK for three years as of June next year. So, fingers crossed.

Studying maths is going fine. Still on the bare basics, but I have never had such a clear understanding of them before! I have a feeling that this will greatly aid me very soon (I should be getting the MST121 preparatory stuff soon).

Also for anyone reading this blog, let me know if you want me to post my notes. It would be a great way to revise what I have learnt thus far, so I have no problem doing it.
