I was hoping to start the psychology degree in October but unfortunately didn't get funding sorted in time so will be starting in February instead.
I had planned on doing E102 Childhood studies and child psychology but unfortunately it only runs in Oct so if I want to start in Feb I'll have to do the DD102 introduction to the social sciences.

What I'm wondering is, in my third year when it comes to my next choices, will I be restricted to certain courses by stating in February? I hope to study the investigating mental health module but now I'm worried it won't run in February and I'll be stuck picking a module I don't want. Is it best to wait until October to get the full choice of modules?

Sorry for long post!

The month of your first module at the OU will always be the start date of your seasonal academic year. You're restricted to 120 credits in any one seasonal academic year. If you start with 60 credits in February for DD102, you can't then start a full intensity 120 credits in October.

If you only plan to study 60 credits at a time, it shouldn't be an issue.
