    Hi I've started the course with open university and am in the course now but few days ago I changed the student finance from part time to full time just thought I'd ask you guys would it be too much for me to complete this within a year I work 28 hours a week is it more than possible to balance this all is my concern? If things do get tough I'm quite lucky as I work in family business so it seems pretty flexible but I'm just curious because I don't want it to clash


    Thanks

    If you've only just started then you won't be able to complete it in one academic year, it will span across two as most modules run from October-April. Level 1 isn't too difficult, so if you're focussed you should be able to keep up with the workload.

    Student Finance for OU degrees is always part time irrespective of the rate at which you study.

    But if you start now it will be classed as two academic years, as academic years run October-June.

    Have a look at your module start dates, you'll probably find you have one (maybe two) which start now, and the rest will start in October and finish June 2018. That's how the OU works.
