    Hey there,

    I am currently considering the same course for an October start, too. I'm still debating whether it is the right thing for me to do as I'm not sure what it would open up for me professionally.
    Do you happen to know which modules they will be offering in Stages 2 and 3 in the next few years? I've noticed that two out of three modules in Stage 2 are about to finish.

    Have you got any concrete ideas about what you want to do after finishing the degree?

    Warmly,
    Claudia

    Hey, I'm also going to be applying for the course and believe the prospectus will be available this month which may give more details on modules?

    Hi!
    I am also looking into that course. Have you enrolled yet? What made you choose OU instead of say Arden University?

    Hey,

    I can recommend the Open Uni course in Psychology, I am just about to finish my 2nd year in Forensic Psy which has similar modules to the counselling course. It is a different style of learning to brick uni but the support from tutors and other students (via FB, forums etc) is really good. As long as you can keep up to date with the weekly course materials you will be fine and lots of the course study materials apply to real life like Milgram’s study on obedience and the impact of technology on people’s mental health.

    Good luck with the course and your studying.

    I was studying Psychology with Counselling through the OU but switched to straight Psychology as the Counselling part wouldn't get me any closer to being a Counsellor after my degree anyway. I've completed DE100 and I'm currently studying DD102... I wanted to take the Childhood and Youth module instead but it wasn't available for Jan / Feb start so I just bit the bullet and went with DD102 to get my degree done a little quicker. Not enjoying DD102 though - can't wait to finish and start my next 2 modules in October. Wanted to do 3 but there was a limit on my student finance so I'm doing 2x30 credit modules

    I never had an issue before doing 60 credits in October and then 60 in Jan / Feb, but apparently it no longer goes academic yearly, but annually, so they cap the finance to 120 credits in 1 year, so I will be doing 60 credits in October, plus the 60 I'm doing now and have hit the cap...
