Hi everyone, I'm starting my DE100 (psych) module in a few days!
I'm excited to be a student again, but studying online is a bit confusing. I'm living in Germany and I need to work while studying, so I need some sort of proof of enrollment from the OU so I can apply to internships/student jobs etc.
Also, it would be nice to have something like that so I can get student discounts by applying for an ISIC/ISEC or so. I know there's the option to get the NUS extra card thing, but I'm not sure how beneficial that would be considering I don't live in the UK.
So far I have a 'record of study' that's just a one page PDF saying what module I'm doing/how many credits with the OU logo on it. That doesn't seem very convincing to send off with job applications.
I had a chat with someone from the OU who didn't get what I was saying at all and just said the student email and being able to log into the student home were proof. I just want a nice looking official enrollment letter.
Has anyone else managed to get a student card/ISIC/NUS extra card when not living in the UK? Or an official enrollment letter and not just a personal record of study?
Side note: Anyone studying with the OU living in Hamburg, Germany???
