    Hi all

    just after some advice. I joined open uni before the fees went up so I still get my courses cheap (ish) at £1000 per 60 credits. Which I pay for myself

    I've done 2 level 1 modules and just started the third. But I don't really understand it and struggle at the moment so I am worried about level 2.

    But it I also wonder if it is even worth bothering. I am a receptionist and enjoy my job. And since meeting my boyfriend after I started the course I really am not bothered about having a career. He thinks I can stop working in about 10 years as the mortgage will be paid and then he can support us both. So I'm thinking what's the point of using £2500 of my own money to get a qualification I don't need, as I am unlikely to apply for another post and it will take 2 and half years to get it. Which isn't really much use if I'm stopping work in 10

    on the other hand I know it's relatively cheap qualification and if I just did it it will always be there as who knows what the future wIll bring.

    Just trying to to weigh up if it is worth doing.
