I'm posting this in the TA forum becuase as a TA soldier myself, I reckon you guys have the most knowlege on civvi employment on arrse. I'm in the first few months of studying with the Open University. As I have commitments where I live, leaving to attend uni full time was not an option. If that had been an option, I would probably have just joined the regulars instead anyway. But I digress. I'm looking for people's opinions, civvi employers especially, of Open degrees. Not degrees offered by the OU in general, an Open Degree comprising of many different, and potentially unrelated subjects. Clicky here for a better explaination. I've already had a hard time trying to explain this concept to my employer, the PSAO, my oppos, family... As I've only just started, I could still use the points that I'm currently earning towards European Studies, for example, but I dont really have enough interest in European languages to study them at the level required for an ES degree. In a nutshell, I'm interested in my studies, but I'm not interested in enough related stuff to get a "specific" (for want of a better word) degree, making the Open Degree ideal. But do employers see the Open Degree as a bit of a cop out?
