Basically, I am currently in my second year of a BEng in electrical engineering at a brick university and I have my sights on studying an MSc in Theoretical Physics afterwards. Now, obviously my engineering background isn't going to adequately prepare me for this, so I am considering the option of transferring the credits that I will have, at the end of this academic year (240 credits), to an open degree, whereby I hope to study the modules; The quantum world, the relativistic universe, electromagnetism and complex analysis. To finish off my degree.
So what I would like to know is.
Would the open university allow me to study level 3 science/mathematics modules with them, without having completed any prior study with them, I know that I am capable of completing study at that level, given that I already own most of the materials for the above courses and have been self teaching.
Also, does anybody have experience in applying for postgraduate degrees with an open degree? I would assume that they would be more interested in the modules studied, as opposed to the name, would this assumption be correct?
We have the answer...
