    I'm wondering if anyone here has first-hand experience of studying over 120 credits in one year with the OU?

    If so, how were you able to convince them to let you do it? They seem pretty stubborn about their regulations and having to meet their criteria, but I know people have done it in the past.

    For the record, I am looking to study 120 credits level 2 starting October and a level 1 module beginning in February so there would only be a 4 month overlap. I have even bought the coursebooks and will have finished studying them before October, so I just need to get permission to do the extra 30 credits.

    How are you funding it? I can think of people having done more in the past, but I suspect that was before the days of loans, which might impact on how much you can do (if that's how you're paying)?

    Part time fee grant (Scotland) for 120 credits. And I'll pay for the extra 30 credits myself.

    There's a possibly-relevant conversation on OUSA Matters but it's a couple of years ago and I don't know if anything is different for Scotland...
