    Hi everyone,

    I've been wanting to join a BA course in English or Foreign Languages with a view to working in Translation in the long run. I knew only about the OU and was fairly sure it was the best distance learning option to go for. However I recently heard about the UOL International Programmes, and the courses seem really nice and complete, not to mention the fees are far more attractive.

    So far the UOL IP seems like a better option but I don't really know about the differences or pros and cons of each one. I would go for the BA in English with Computing.

    In addition, I applied for the Foreign Languages undergraduate degree with the OU some months ago, but I haven't chosen the modules yet. I wonder if it's possible to withdraw my application at this point?

    Any information you might have will be highly appreciated.

    Hello, you can cancel your OU any time before the start date without penalty. However I'd investigate the UoL degrees before switching as they apparently provide a lot less support than the OU. You just get the books and then show up at the exams. At least with the OU you'd have tutorials, etc. I guess it depends on the level of support you require.
