    I am a would be mature student with a BSc already from a brick university but considering starting to work towards a degree in Physics. At the moment only distance learning is available to me. I've looked at the open university options but not sure whether to start working towards to a Life Sciences degree or whether to use this time to prep myself for application to a brick university. I honestly don't know if a physics degree is feasible or sensible. Originally I was looking at courses to help me re enter the job market (currently a stay at home mum). At present I don't have the entry requirements for a Physics degree at a brick uni. Would doing OU modules now in Maths and or Physics be any help? Should I do a distance Maths A level instead?And has anyone started a degree with OU then transferred to a brick uni? is that an option? the lack of pratical lab work concerns me. current qualifications (from a long time ago) include a BSc in Engineering Product Design 92:1) and A levels in Physics, Biology and Art (CCC). I haven't studied in ten years

    Have you considered the Open Plus route in Physics? I'm about to start this October, and I'll be transferring to Sheffield full time in a couple years. Check it out as it might be the answers to you prayers
