    I thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of university modules/courses which you can study (in English) via distance learning for free. Maybe you're looking for a way to cut the cost of a degree, or perhaps you would like to do something a bit different to make your UCAS application stand out. Some of these modules require 60 ECTS (1 year of university study) to enol, but the majority are open to everyone.

    You can also visit Sweden's university admissions website and use the search function to find newer modules which may not be featured on this list.

    I have a few questions, though. Say someone does 60 credits with these online distance-learning modules. What can they do besides transferring the credits to the OU? Where would these modules be mentioned in their CV? :confused:

    Not sure. I suppose it depends on which modules you do and over what time frame. If you completed 60 ECTS in a year then you could say something like: 2015-2016: One-year programme in X subject (60 ECTS, equivalent to first year of a degree). Or you could list modules you've taken under a separate 'Independent Coursework' heading.

    Thank you :hugs:

    I was considering Caucasus Studies so I can learn Russian and then take the TORFL (Test of Russian as a Foreign Language) for the level I reach by then
