    Hi All
    I am in a complicated situation at the moment and I can't decide what I want to do. I am currently in my 3rd year of five of a Bsc Health and Social Care at Open University and although I love my course I am hating doing everything from home. I also have an offer for UEL psychology which I deferred last year for mental health reasons.

    I really want to be a social worker and I have been looking at possible options.

    Either complete my degree with OU
    Graduate entry at universities
    Graduate entry via frontline and think ahead

    take the psychology route and transfer my points or apply for BSc route again

    Has anyone got any advice on what I can do?

    Can you fund a new degree and your living expenses easily? If not, then sticking out your current OU degree is probably you only option.

    If you can, what made you go for a psychology undergraduate degree, rather than a social work one? Are you sure you'd enjoy the content of a psychology degree?

    Are the mental health issues you mentioned fully resolved?
