    I start two modules in febuary doing a CertHE, would it be to late if I wanted to change a module, registration closes on the 15th and my tuition fee loan has been approved, or would it be to late. I choose to do MU123 and M140, I want to change M140 as I don't want to study it, I'm maybe thing Engineering the future.

    Could I change my CertHE in math sciences to a CertHE open?

    That sounds fine. Do NOT get in touch with the OU by email, as their underlings are incredibly dense and unhelpful. Call them, or request a free callback and just explain stuff; they will have no idea what you're talking about, because they have not learned the alphabet yet, but they will put you through to a more specific department that WILL sort it out.

    I've found emailing them more helpful as most the people I get on the phone haven't a clue! (Plus with email have it in writing what they say, so good proof.) Then after I've gotten email responses I usually call armed with that information so the people on the phone don't have to think too hard!

    That's a good point about the documentary evidence. The only downside is that he/she has a week to sort this out and they will take a week or so to reply to the OP, so I'd strongly suggest the phonecall. I have made sure to insist that they contact the relevant department because those guys always sort things out for me.

    True it depends on how long you have at the end of the day. Mind you I've been emailing credit transfer dept and the lady dealing with my case is responding either nearer the end of the same day or the next morning!! :eek: Best if can find direct phone number/email addresses for departments rather than first calling generic OU line as the hold times can be horrible only to be transferred across as I found out last year.
