    Hello everyone ,

    I've currently reserved a space doing a Law degree with the OU.

    Has anyone got any experience? How difficult was it for you? Was there plenty of support available if needed?

    I have no typical career in mind, I like to keep my choices open and I'm quite aware that I will likely have to do a further degree in a specialised area which I'm happy to do.

    I feel as though a law degree opens up further job opportunities and that I won't be limited to just one job.

    However I'm quite unsure on what to expect and would love to hear what others think.

    I did social sciences, which shares some of the early modules with law.

    There is a lot of support.
    There's the tutor group forum, which is a forum where students in you tutor group can post their questions/problems and others can reply. This is mainly used for course content issues, like if you don't understand a topic, but you can discuss anything.
    Your tutor - you can email or phone them. Your tutor usually sends an introductory welcome email at the start of the course, and will say when/how is best to contact them.
    Tutorials - your tutor will hold tutorials where they go over the material and answer any questions. These can be face-to-face, where everyone goes to the venue, or sometimes are online. Other tutors also have tutorials, so if you can't get to any there might be alternatives you can make.
    The student support team - these are for problems that aren't work related. You wouldn't contact them if you can't understand chapter 6, but you might contact them if you have queries about your next module choice or finance.
