I am working full time while trying to take math courses. My aim is both to fulfill math prerequisites for an MFE (or other quantitative masters) and also develop my math skills just generally.

I am based in London and planning to enroll at Open University for the courses. Would this be a fine option from MFE admissions perspective and quality of courses? Or is there a preferred other place to take these courses as a full-time worker in London? I have tried to look for places to take math courses in London as a non-degree student but it seems like there aren't too many options (I am aware of Net Math but Open University seems like a preferable option to me in terms of structure and flexibility of studying).

The Open University offers courses that look to cover the basic content for quantitative finance (calculus, linear algebra, statistics, differential equations etc.) The course names are quite general ("Essential Mathematics", "Mathematical Methods") but looking at the syllabuses, I could fill all prerequisites through OU. I would think this is fine as long as I would describe the module contents when applying to programs?
