If you are thinking about doing the design and media course one of the Account Managers in New Horizons should have emailed you out a demo of what you are looking to buy so you can experience what it is like first hand.

I'm planning to do "T206 Energy for a Sustainable Future" with the OU in Feb 2008, anybody here done something similar?

Bit worried about trying to fit that in around a full time job ... any tips?

One 60 point course should be manageable enough - of course, it all depends on how you find the material. If it's a subject you have some experience in or knowledge of, it'll mean less work then someone approaching it totally new.

My top tip - try to keep to the study calender you get. Getting behind (obviously) makes it harder to keep up. And don't be afraid to use FirstClass (the OU's forum/online conferencing application) when you get access to it. The forums there can be pretty useful!

Diploma in Science & Technology AUA (NUIG)

hi all!
doing a diploma in the above since january.
1st year of the course not bad so far so good.
second semester just started until Christmas.
90% distance ed with 10% tutorials and labs.

In conjunction with my work in medical device industry.

Fees are a wee bit on the steep side as its €350 per subject and doing 10 this year!!!
anyway that there could be a tax break invloved for fees and/or books also???

AFAIK you can claim from revenue for tuition fees. Have a look here
Not too sure how the rules would apply to you, but it's worth applying anyway.

I am considering leaving Oscail though, the quality of some of the notes are very poor (I have to say the tutors are generally brilliant though)

Can anyone recommend another college which provides BSc in IT through distance education?

The one that springs to mind (especially if you're in the UK) is the OU. You'll probably be able to get credit for the diploma too, which means less courses to be done to get your BSc

UEL also offer a distance learning computing degree

They dont have as wide a range as the OU, but do have a better selection of finance / business related masters. They are tad cheaper than the OU and have been offering distance learning for many years.

All in all i would say im very pleased with them
actually i have always been interested in those UoL Courses.
Do you work in financial services, and what sort of feedback did you get from your bosses..
