I studied a Law Degree (LLB) for Four Years as I had to retake some first year modules but found some of the subject areas particularly difficult to pass (Contract and Equity), as a result I was only awarded a "PASS" award or an ordinary degree, I do not have honours and am finding it difficult to establish a career. I realise now that I chose the wrong degree programme but it is of course too late now. I graduated 6 years ago and have been doing meaningless hourly paid work ever since. I am now thinking about becoming an ECA or potentially even a student paramedic but wondered if it was possible to top up my ordinary degree to make it an honours degree?
Could I even use it to skip the first year of a new course in Uni? Any advice would be appreciated.

It is possible for you to transfer your uni credits to the Open University. See here for details. Apparently you can only transfer 120 credits (your first year of study) to the OU's LLB, but if you were prepared to do an Open Degree, you can transfer up to 240 credits. The good thing about the OU is that your grades in the first year don't affect your final degree classification, you just need to pass them.Last edited by Snufkin; 14-01-2015 at 18:39.
