I would really appreciate advice from anyone who is currently studying (via Distance Learning) the University Certificate in Psychology at the University of Derby.
I am considering this course with the aim of moving onto the MSc.
It says each module takes up to 20 hours of study per week. As a mature student working full time does anyone know (from actual experience) how feasible this is? Do you have to keep this amount of study up every single week or is it just a guideline?
Any advice would be appreciated.

I am also a mature student working full-time, and I've just been accepted onto this course (also hoping to progress to the conversion PGDip!).
It's my first time studying with Derby, but for the last two years I've been studying with the OU, also at PG level. They say the courses need 16 hours a week, which I would say is a higher estimate of what's actually required. I tended to find most weeks I wouldn't need that much time, then when it comes to essay time, I'd have a mad 2-3 weeks of 16-20 hours' study!
Good luck and let me know if you do sign up for it, as I haven't found anyone else doing it (e.g. on Facebook!)
