Do you know of any Universities offering an undergraduate degree in Maths by distance learning other than the Open University.It is important that the content is in English language and any tutors will be able to deliver any online tutorial in English.

    $\begingroup$ You should be aware that, to the best of my knowledge (as an interested party), the available on-line programs (in early 2016) are not very good at all, and will often not be recognized as truly legitimate, whether or not they have some legal status. Second, again with qualifications, the perspective such programs will give an aspiring mathematician is fatally limited in ways that a naive person would not see. I myself do entirely endorse the idea of more-freely available information via internet, but the situation is still flawed... despite YouTube, whatever. It's not mature. Duh, ... :) $\endgroup$ – paul garrett Jan 22 '16 at 0:38
  • $\begingroup$ @paul garrett It is unfortunate indeed. I wonder, which university will be the first to offer a serious math major online. I've not seen a program which seems up to the standards I see in many residential programs... $\endgroup$ – James S. Cook Feb 21 '16 at 0:41

You could look at Massey University. I have known many people to use this university's distance program, undergrad and postgrad, and they have had good experiences. It was even recommended by my local university as the best option for a non-contact course.

Below are the available Maths/Stats distance papers this year - enough for a full degree.

160.101 Calculus I 160.102 Linear Mathematics 160.103 Introductory University Mathematics 160.111 Mathematics 1A 160.112 Mathematics 1B 160.203 Calculus 160.204 Differential Equations I 160.211 Linear Algebra 160.212 Discrete Mathematics 160.301 Analysis 160.314 Combinatorics 160.318 Differential Equations II 160.320 Mathematics in Education

161.120 Introductory Statistics 161.130 Introductory Biostatistics 161.200 Statistical Models 161.220 Data Analysis 161.221 Applied Linear Models 161.223 Introduction to Data Mining 161.304 Advanced Statistical Modelling 161.322 Design and Analysis of Surveys and Experiments 161.327 Generalised Linear Models 161.342 Forecasting and Time Series 161.380 Statistical Analysis Project

Western Governors University. One of my coworkers has a masters from them, and our school is also currently hosting a student teacher who is getting his undergrad through them.
