Is the open university degree same as a regular degree? I want to obtain a major of physics from an Indian university. So after I finish with all the course requirement and obtain a mathematics degree from open university (UK), am I considered as a double major by the employers? The reason for considering open university is that it allows a part time course and reason for choosing mathematics degree is that I don't need a lab. And lots of physics and applied maths courses overlap so it serves as an advantage And if you have any other recommendations, please tell me!
