Greetings all,

I'm looking for universities that offer online (distance learning) math and/or physics courses, that may be taken over the summer for example.

Anybody know of schools that offer this?


Thanks a lot!

No idea where you're from, but if you live in the UK I would suggest you check out the open university.
