    Has anyone have any good experience with them,or know someone that does? Does it really costs about 3,300 pounds to get a degree in 3 years? Or is there alot more fees involved.

    It's the university of London, which is quite good. The fees quoted are for last year. I BELIEVE fees for most UK universities have risen considerably this year, and are going to be I'm the region of £3,300 a year now!!

    GOOD LUCK

    If you are local it is around 3000 per year, otherwise if you are international it is 9000 per year.

    it was about 3,300 pounds total for 3 years. Its the independent studies what I was looking at. I have to take the GCSE or A level tests first though,my U.S. diploma is worthless when it comes to overseas colleges. Is the GCSE or A level valid in other European countries if I decide I want to go to a "brick and mortar" college in Europe?

    Not really, as most European states use the IB (International Baccalaureate) as standard I believe.

    Also, what do you mean GCSE or A Level tests. The flow is GCSE -> A Level -> Uni, so I can't understand why it would be an OR situation.
    I'm pretty sure most, if not all, Universities here require a minimum of 3 A-Levels (AS & A2) for entry regardless of the course taken or how it's being sat.

    Also as Jerra said, make sure you're not looking at figures for last year. For 2011+ entrants the government just flipped their Uni endowments up, which means each student is going to be paying about 3x the old standard (£9,000 per year as oppose to around £3,150) - however, this is for brick and mortar non-international students though.

    so you are talking about doing a top up course to make your qualifications equivalent to A levels?? Or are you talking about doing a degree .. im confused!

    as far as i am aware all unis are charging more than 3k a year now as they are allowed to charge upto 9k

    In the words of the Labour governments manifesto: ~"We are against tuition fees and have legislated against them".

    They then brought out tuition fees. And now they are going up to 9k a year.
