Hello, first time poster on here!
I'm currently employed full time as a civil servant, but I'm looking into the idea of attending Open University and doing a degree whilst maintaining my employment. The long term aim being to move into a specialist field of work as I'm not at all being challenged currently.
My first question is in regards to ucas points; I've perused the OU website, and it states I don't need any qualifications to undertake the studies in various subjects, even such as BsC Hons in Health Studies. Is this correct, or do I in fact need something such as an A in biology etc?
My second question is whether there is any option of a bursary/student finance type options whilst attending Open University, or is it based on being in employment = you're on your own?
When can you expect yours?
