    I've just enrolled to study Certificate of Higher Education in Computing & IT, the course is worth 120 credits. I hope to complete this and then use as a pathway into brick uni. I was curious once I complete this course and attend university full time would I be in second year? I've read that this course is worth 2/3 of undergraduates degree

    Technically a Certificate of Higher Education is equal to the first year of a degree (so 1/3); however it is very difficult to transfer into the second year of a brick university degree using OU qualifications. To be able to transfer, the university you are applying to needs to be satisfied that the modules you have done are equivalent to their own (not just the level of study, but also the topics covered). Email the universities you are interested in and ask, but I would be surprised if any agreed to let you transfer into the second year.

    You will be able to use your CertHE to gain entry into a brick university, but you will more than likely have to begin the degree from the first year.
