Opinions on Open Uni

Considering doing a year of open uni to get a certificate or maybe an access module to see if I like a subject. Do you think this is a good choice ? Or would this be a waste of time , should I go straight into a degree?

I am currently studying with the OU and was unsure of what I wanted to do at the start. The beauty of the OU is the flexibility, I am unsure of your circumstances but this is what sold it to me due to me still working full time. If you was to enrol onto a CertHE 120 credits this can be carried forward on to a full degree (Well this is the case with Engineering) so it gives you options without committing to a full degree straight up.
