    So I'm looking at doing an Open University engineering degree mainly because there's no entry requirements and i have no A-levels and the colleges near me don't take on adult learners for A-levels (I'm 21). My question is do they teach you the basics and work your way up or are you thrown in the deep end and are expected to know a lot already? The idea of problem solving, designing, building, managing seems to really tickle my fancy, even though i know little about the subject at the current time.

    Cheers.
