Just wondered if anyone has had any experience of this? Long story short, I'm in England (and skint!), lost my job recently and really fancy a change of career - thinking of a physics degree and possibly even later post grad study. I can pay £17,000 for an OU degree in England or I can move up with my family in Glasgow (thanks to my Scottish Dad) and get the exact same course for £5000. This is the difference between it being possible or not possible for me to do it. I'd plan to do it in 3-4 years - and to be perfectly frank I haven't decided if I would then actually stay there or sneak off home with instruction for my family to forward the course materials. As far as I can tell, unlike other uni's I have looked at, the OU doesn't stipulate that you have to have lived in Scotland for any particular length of time. Just that it is your "main and lawful address". I'm just wondering if anyone has had to provide proof of residency at the OU - what do they ask for? Not much info online.
