    what would be best. Doing human biology at derby university or health science at open university? Is OU degrees seen as worth less than being at a brick uni?

    Pick the course that interests you more. Also think about the amount of lab time you'll get because that makes a big difference if you want to stay in science.

    The OU choice is wheteher you cna cope with distance learning imo i.e no campus and no ongoing Uni experience. As a matter of interest how do you do lab work on OU?

    Imo OU degree is seen as worth less than some Unis and more than others. I'd rate an OU degree higher than Derby, but class of degree matters the most at that level. Find out more about each course and decide what you will enjoy and suit you

    If you do the OU degree full time, (120 credits per year) you won't get a maintenance loan.

    You need to look at the modules of both and the other stuff mentioned above.

    You're comparing apples and oranges. Bricks and mortar uni vs online uni. OU is on a par with other unis. Are those your only two options?
