    I am in my first year of university, I started off with Criminology and Psychology. Soon into the course, I realized that I had had enough of psychology after A level and wanted to drop it.

    I am studying through the OU and rang to see if I can change my degree into Criminology and Law. Unfortunately that was not offered so I was given chance to either do the open degree or do a Law degree.

    I am now confused as what to choose. Can someone advice me on the advantages and disadvantages of all especially an open degree?
    My heart is split between changing it into law or criminology , i just can't decide

    You could study Criminology at degree level. If you then decided you wanted to work in a legal capacity, you'd have to do a Graduate Diploma in Law - which is the same core modules on a law degree.
