Thinking of open uni

I'm thinking of doing an open uni course. I never did do my exams at school as i hated big crowds and things. Lately, i have that wanting to do something feeling and thought of an open uni course. Maybe in history or history and politics. Im fascinated with the past and having to see how politics have shaped the world i think that would be great

Has anyone else here done an open uni course or doing one. Is it any good or should i give it a miss?
