    I'm a third year undergrad psychology student and want to move to Artificial Intelligence as a second bachelor's degree, after I'm done with my current one.
    I recently went to the Open Day of the University of Edinburgh and went to see one of the admissions tutors there. I described her my case and she recommended me to get 120 credits in maths, from which at least 60 have to be at level 2. She proceeded to tell me that I should give Open University a look, which I did. They however told me that they are only awarding qualifications from level 4 upwards.
    Since I've lived most of my life in Germany I am not too familiar with this classification system. I googled a bit back and forth but I am still a bit confused about it all. Does anyone have any experience or at least knowledge about this system?
    I am trying to find out how long it would take to get to these qualifications, and if it would be possible to do them on the side so that I could maybe even apply for 2018 entry. Ideally I would do them purely online and only attend course facilities for exams. I would appreciate any form of help or clarification tremendously!

    Level 2 is equivalent to a GCSE grades A*-C (or nowadays 9-4)
