So I chose to study Business Management with the Open Uni for 3 (relevant to this post) reasons:
1. I manage a pub.
2. I was home schooled and due to no formal qualifications at GCSE level, I was unable to obtain any at a higher level. So overall I came out of education with nothing and no real opportunities.
3. I just want to go to a brick uni, and this was the only affordable way that didn't take about 4 years prior to actually going to uni.
However, I'm barely into it and I'm already finding it dull. I don't want to stay in Business Management, I hate it for a job and I find it boring as a subject. I've made a big mistake choosing this.
I expect it's far too late to change my course to something I would enjoy now. What I'm wondering is, is there any chance I could stick out the first year and, assuming I do okay and can meet all other prerequisites, apply to Primary Teaching QTS? Or is that a massive no-go with my background/degree choice combo? If it makes a difference, I'd be aiming to go to Brighton, as it's my local.
Is it worth going? Find out here
