Why don't LAW or SCIENCE rejects not consider Open University?

    • Thread Starter

    Fees are less, you can stay at home, entry requirements are so low. To me, it seems too good to be true.. Is there some sort of catch to this?

    what do you mean by reject? A levels fails?

    Some people prefer a physical uni for social reasons. Its not a bad choice if you can study on your own.

    The catch is, it's not respected anywhere near as much as most universities.
    A field like Law in particular is one where people do much better from highly respected unis.
    If you have no alternative it can be a route into other things however.
