Maybe it's because no-body is stupid enough to do an open course.

Hang on a minute, what an ignorant thing to say! Open courses can be a great way into higher education for people who haven't wanted/been able to attend uni before. Open uni students generally have had more experience and time to develop their ideas.

Indeed, Open University courses are very well respected by employers.

I love it how you write about subjects you know nothing about, how do you know they are respected? I've had experience with open courses and employers so i could comment on how respectable they are, how can you?

Don't be so blooming snotty and opinionated! OU is VERY respectable. If you don't like it, go and join in another thread!

Well I can't speak for Lord Huntroyde, but why do you assume he would post something he doesn't know anything about - please give people a bit more credit. I know several people who have done open university courses and found them to be a chance at an opportunity they never thought they'd have. My mother works in education and also believes there a great benefits to be gained from open university.

If anything, it is people with a snobby and incredulous attitude like yours that reinforce any empolyment problems suffered by O.U. graduates. I would have thought a good employer would see a mature and industrious mind when looking at an O.U graduate.

It should not have been an argument - just a silly comment by an unregistered type person.

And if you people had heard of self control there wouldn't have been argument

Good for you Wicked, you take that course! The only people who'd have something against Open Uni' courses are snobs. Because they're not traditional, they're seen as 'second-class', just as HNDs are.

fair enough, but HNDs arent second class, they are a practical course, which lead onto the BSc that i did. The HND took 2 years, the BSc 1 year, so i got 2 courses, 1 practical and 1 theory in the same 3 years i could have took to do my BSc Hons.

Actually, I think we showed remarkable self control given the snobby and ignorent nature of the original comment about O.U. courses.
