Costs of studying at the Open University

What does it cost *money-wise* to study at the Open University? For residents of the UK the costs are highly subsidized. I don't complain that non-UK residents have to pay three or four times the amount UK students must pay. On the contrary, I am glad we get the opportunity to study at the OU. There is an Open University in The Netherlands as well. The courses are -probably- OK but the courses they offer are limited. They don't offer mathematics. The Dutch attitude is "no second-chance for mathematics". What they offer is economics and law.

To the point. I just paid the full cost of a years study ( 90 points ) at the OU UK, that is M280 ( pure mathematics ) and MT365 ( graph theory ) : the total amount was GBP 2625 or approx. Euro 2750 which is tax-deductable. This includes everything: books, DVD's, teacher support, TMA revisions and exam fee. It's OK. Although if you have a family to support and money is tight it could be expensive. Thank G_d, I can afford it.

I am very grateful I can do this. Nobody is telling me I should. I simply want to. It feels like a great adventure.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(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.)
