    Hi all,

    I am new to TSR. I am an apprentice working for an engineering company and have recently completed my HNC in Menchanical Engineering with a grade of Distinction overall... below is the breakdown of the units:
    Analytical Methods for engineers - Distinction
    Engineering Science - Merit
    Business management Techniques for Engineers - Distinction
    Fluid mechanics - Merit
    Project design implementation and evaluation - Distinction
    Mechanical Principles - Distinction
    Application of Pneumatics & Hydraulics - Distinction
    Engineering Thermodynamics - Distinction

    I would like to carry on studying and so I have been looking at OU and doing a Bachelors in Engineering via Open University. I am very keen on using these grades I achieved towards my degree qualification. If I am likely to be accepted credit transfer how many modules would I be able to skip? (I have provided the modules that I will be doing in my BEng with OU below). And I was also wondering if there is another apprentice/technician out there like myself that has been on the same boat as I am in terms of wanting to do a degree from a HNC or has already done that? This apprenticeship route is quite peculiar and it would be great to talk to someone that is doing something similar to me.

    This site might help you in determining your credit transfer prospects, but you'll also want to read the disclaimer on the page:
