I was at a presentation about studying ( mathematics ) at the Open University in the UK. The presentation was held in The Hague, Lange Houtstraat 11. I arrived early which gave me the opportunity to talk to a course consultant prior to the presentation. She answered most of the questions I had. The presentation took about 45 minutes and was very informative. Some interesting facts are:
 200,000 students worldwide;
 +/ 560 students in NL;
 mathematics is a popular study among Dutch students ;
 most students are in the age group 3140;
 credits earned don't expire;
 there are no entrylevel requirements;
 earning 60 points a year may cost upto 2000 punds a year ( if not more ).
Anyway, I decided that I will register as a student and take my first course in September.

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
