I'm Sam and have just finished A330 and A219 (both classics courses) and in oct am about to embark on the Empires and Global Heritage courses which will finish my history degree off.
I have just been given the result of my final BA course and studying with the OU has been a real life experience. As far as I can see, I have been given between 85-99% for 'skills of independent study', so I must have done something right!
How's your studying going? Have you had your courses' results yet? I hope you managed all right and that you got what you wanted out of them! Best of luck with your two final courses in October!
So is there anyone else out there who is planning A815 or A816 next year? Or any of the other literature courses? I just registered for 816 - can't really afford it but prices will never be lower, I'm sure, (and I will never be younger) so it's a case of carpe diem
And, from what I have seen from all the foreign students (me included) in the conference centre , I can safely say that learning and studying in a foreign language (in English) has demanded from us so much more energy and time that we can be proud of the achievement realised up to graduation! And let's not even discuss the achievement of the disabled lady (who is blind) who managed to get her degree too - she had everyone's cheers, louder and longer than anyone else! :-)
I'll keep in touch with everyone on the forum, I have renewed my OUSA union membership for a further year (it's free and you can do that, apparently), so I'll be bothering people for a while yet! Who knows, I might even do some more courses in the future, and, as an alumna, I can share some study tips and all with people interested in the courses!
I'd say, so far, that French unis are way below UK standards when it comes to admin. I am waiting to see about the course.
£18x6 for the graduation places = £108 = €123.66
gown hire + mortarboard + postage + photograph and its mailling = £151.40 = €173.35
restaurant on-site = €18/p for 4 people = €72
Making a total of €369, without the drinks at lunch time + afterwards and the car park ticket for the day.
We did a full car share from Normandie (we were just 1 h away from the venue) and we tried to limit our expenses, so imagine people from Germany or Eastern Europe, Spain or Italy! :-)
