    Right, here's the deal. I'm off to college in a month's time to do an access course in which I will study three highers plus other associated stuff. I want to go to Dundee Uni to study English next year, so as a mature student (I'll be 40 by then) I want to enhance my application as much as possible.

    Any ideas what other courses I can do to make myself stand out from the younger students? I'm just about to finish an OU 60 point course in the Arts Past & Present, I was thinking about doing a TEFL course, I can probably fit in a couple of 10 point OU courses over the course of the winter (I will be studying maybe 20 hours a week at college and then of course home study) and I don't have to work this year as I have savings, so I can devote my whole year (nearly) to getting my place at uni.

    What other courses did others do to make themselves more appeallable to their unis - any advice so gratefully received - thanks!

    Oxford do some pretty good online courses which provide you with CATS points.
