have a few questions on behalf of a Polish friend, and would be extremely grateful for any help anyone can give. He wants to study psychology at the OU, but is worried about his level of English, (I'd say it's towards the higher end of intermediate / lower end of advanced), can someone tell me if this will affect him grately (it'll mainly be a problem in written things / exams) - or is most of it written assignments as opposed to exams?
also, I;m having difficulties finding out if he will need to attend any centres (and if so how regularly) i know it will vary for different modules, but can someone with experience share their experiences
thirdly, can someone confirm the costs of studying a degree at the open university (he currently lies in Birmingham, but may re-locate to Wales - will this affect the cost of study?)
fourthly, how easy is it to transfer credits from previous study (he did start his studies in Poland, but had to stop his studies (last year) - he finished 1st year and his university is listed on the page.
and finally, would it be possible to fit the equivilant to a 3 year degree around a full time job (he works 6am-3pm and is looking at doing about 120 credits (the equivilant to a normal full time degree) per year for 3 years.
I know there are a lot of questions, but any help would be extremely helpful
What should I do?
