A degree is a degree.. ( no matter which uni its from... Obviously apart from an Oxbridge one)
You still have to study for it and also have pass the exams.
To be honest.. IMHO.. if somebody applied for a position that I had advertised.. If the applicant had an OU degree, to me that would speak volumes..
Usually, someone with an OU degree, has relised they want to better themselves, they, have made a well informed descision to get a degree in a subject they are passionate about.
They usally have had to study at home AFTER doing a days work. Is more committed to getting the qualifications.
I'm not dismissing the traditional degrees.. But someone with an OU degree has had quite a lot to overcome to get it..
Don't Dream it....Be it.. Xubuntu...
