Hi all just looking to try and work out where I stand and wondered if anyone could help me?
I really want to get into nursing, with a young family I applied to the Open Uni and did some modules working towards a health and social care degree thinking whilst my children were young it would give me the qualifications I needed to get into nursing with the flexibility of working from home (with the plan to apply for nursing once all my children are in full time school which is next year)
However I failed my last few modules and will not complete in time (I was on transitional fees) from the modules I did complete I have 180 credits, I had a panic then shook myself off and starting making a plan of action of where to go next and then I saw a few posts regarding funding for courses and it got me panicking again will I even be able to receive funding for the nursing course now then it is no longer NHS funded? Or have I messed up my whole plan??
Hope this makes sense and thank you
I am applying for sept 17 with my OU credits i have 90 and most unis have responded possitively so you should have no problem. I also went into a melt down when it was announced the NHS were no longer funding but then heard about the exemption its such a relief! Im 31 now and thought my life was ruined but cant wait to hopefully start uni next year!!
I used my qualifications/modules at the OU as proof of recent study to gain access to full time courses. Good luck!
