I have recently found out that I have failed my second year at Speech and Language Therapy. Whilst I was good at the academic side to the course, my grades in the practical placement side to things were a lot lower and I am now considering changing my path and choosing a different course to transfer to with the credits I have gained from the last two years of this course.
After a few negative experiences on my course, I have lost most of my motivation for healthcare and I think I am heading more towards a more 'academic' course, e.g. biology or psychology which were the options I was considering after my A-Levels, before I decided on Speech and Language Therapy.
I am not at all sure what I would like to do in the future in terms of job opportunities but I only say biology and psychology as these were the subjects I was best at at sixth form. The reason I didn't choose either of these initially was because of the apparent difficulties with finding a job with a psychology degree and I also wasn't keen on the job prospects with a biology degree (I really am not interested in lab work or research, etc.)
I have very little work experience so I was considering OU so that I could look for a job at the same time and build up experience. I have also looked at the 'open degree', so that I can mix and match modules, considering I am unsure about which degree I definitely want to do. However, I am concerned that a degree from a traditionally respected uni may look better on my CV.
My A-Level grades are: Biology - A, Psychology - A and Chemistry - C.
Any help would be very greatly appreciated!!!
