Hi everyone can I join? I enrolled on an open degree pathway today , I start 'AA100 The arts past and present' this October I was originally going to go Bristol uni but thinking it through with childcare costs and travel costs it would have been too much so I decided this was my best option.
Does anyone know why you can only do 60 credits in the first year? I really want to do more as I don't want to drag the course on to 4 years.
Hiya! Course you can, the more the merrier
As for the 60 credits only - are you getting funding? I vaguely remember a friend saying they would only give funding for up to 60 creds in first year to prevent people taking up loads, funded, then realising the workload and dropping out.
for those starting after sept 12 you can get a student loan to cover the course fees so that's what I'm doing, I'm not sure if thats the same thing. I wish you could get a loan for material though as I'll have to buy a new laptop, we have a Mac thats 1 version too old
Rhi_Rhi1 - I'm sure it'll be fine handing it in a bit late and you did let them know in advance!
What is the OU like? like how do you do the course? I know you use books but are there any programs you use on the pc?
Finished ! i brought a new laptop with the grant money last year, as we only had a crappy old desktop there is alot of study resources on the computer, but it is mainly with the books, i have a tutorial every month, but i don't actually go cos i'm naughty lol but the option is there
Had my books through for my second module this week! eeee, its another level one, got to be honest though i am worried about moving up to level 2, after this one, i know i can't stay at level one for ever i am just an average scorer and i am worried this means i will be a low scorer at a higher level, iykwim ? like a 75% now would be a 50 at level 2 i feel like i should be scoring 90 % to be capable. i am excited to do level 2 in October though as it will finally be ALL about my degree, i am getting a bit fed up of this art history one month, literature the next, etc crap :P x
Don't worry Rhi about going to L2 You're doing the right thing getting a grounding at L1 first. L2 is a step up from L1 obvs but as long as you make sure you give yourself enough time to understand stuff you'll be grand. It does tend to recap and build on L1 stuff too (provided your L2 is in anyway related to the L1 you did lol)
