    Hi,
    I've just finished my Maths degree with the OU. There's loads of answers for questions like this on the OU website, I recommend having a good look around it.

    General guidelines are 8 hours per week for 30 point courses, 16 for 60 points. I found that I did less for level 1 courses, about that for level 2 and way more for level 3.

    If you are good at Maths then the level 1 courses should be very straightforward for you, but to complete in 3-4 years means pretty much full-time study.

    I found the teaching materials to be generally excellent, I also had face-to-face tutorials as well as online tutorials, although I believe the way tutorials are done is changing.

    You do need to be self-motivated and good at managing your time. Almost all the time you will be reading and learning on your own. I really enjoyed my degree although it was hard work.

    Please feel free to ask questions!

    I completed MST224 and MST124 on a physics degree. The maths modules are the best modules I completed because they have excellent webcasts, tutorials, recorded videos, textbooks... I could go on and on, you get a lot for your money. Maths department are on their A game.

    hi i have almost finished MST124 and M140 and I'm starting MST125 and DB123 in october. I am working towards a BSc Mathematics. I am enjoying it and I am quite confident in Mathematics so the first year was not too stressful for me and also since I did 60 credits. I want to continue the rest of my course full time

    No sorry, I should have said.

    A friend of mine did English there (undergrad) and always said how good it was. The masters appeals as I will be working.
