Like anyone else studying this course, I was notified it was ending in 2017 and being replaced by Q91 Business & Management. I was notified only once I enrolled, which was very frustrating, I am not saying it was done under-hand, but I wish it was made clear to me before I enrolled! I don't really want to work hard and be awarded an obsolete degree, and Business and Management will have the latest learning materials available. Therefore i am changing pathways, no doubt about it.
Anyway, I had 60 credits transferred at level 1 due to free-choice in the first year. I queried transferring the same onto Q91 however the OU credit transfer team declined it and said to me that they cannot honour the credits transferred. But the course Q91 is identical in level 1 and almost identical in structure to Q70, with the addition of a few free-choice modules in level two and three to do with management.
Is anyone else in the same situation? I'm a third year student and think they should be awarded.
Does anyone know if it's worth me taking it higher and seeing if they can be awarded?
