    I am due to begin a Psychology Conversion MSc, at the University of Derby, via distance learning (at the end of January).

    I have a few questions to anyone who may currently be studying/has graduated from a similar course. All feedback is greatly appreciated!

    1) How many hours of study were you required to put in for both a part time and full time route? I have read that we should allocate 20 and 40 hours respectively, would you say this is accurate?

    2) What is a reasonable number of hours that you would recommend committing to paid work, whilst studying? I will definitely need to work alongside my studies, but don't want to let my grades slip due to working too many hours.

    3) How challenging/demanding did you find the course generally? Was it a significant step up from your undergrad?

    4) Finally, just how difficult was it to achieve a high 2:1? And is a first almost unheard of?

What's the best type of cheese?
