    I am in the OU originally I was going to do the Honours degree in Psychology but now I'm thinking of doing an Open degree instead. I've completed all my level twos and am in the middle of DD307 . My question is. Do I need to do another level 3 to complete an open degree? Also I am thinking of going in for sprts psychology but have noticed there's only one module on it . Am I right in thinking when the psychology degree is finished that you need to study for that module after to be qualified for Sports Psychology?

    You need 300 points to claim a foundation degree and you then add another 60 points to top that up to a degree with honours. You can do any combination of modules for the Open degree but you will need a certain number at each level, for example 120 at Level One, 120 at Level Two and 120 at Level Three.

    ok thanks that's what I thought . I have 120 at level 1 and 120 at level 2 so it a ears after this module I'll need another 60 points. The reason I asked is I'm a wheelchair user and because of benefit cuts may have to shorten it

    As the other poster said, it's 300 points for a foundation degree, 360 for a degree with honours. For an Open degree there is a list of optional modules worth 60 points that you have to take at level 1. You also need to make sure that you don't do 120 points at level 2 that are purely for a BA and then 120 at level 3 that are purely for a BSc. However, if you've been doing psychology most of those courses can count for either.
