    I was wondering if anyone has had any previous experience? I was considering completing a BA in English Literature with the OU and then completing a postgraduate qualification to teach secondary education.

    Would a distance learning degree put me at a disadvantage when applying for a PGCSE or an MA in English?

    How to Brick Universities look at OU degrees when applying for postgrad study?

    "To join this programme, a good first degree in a relevant subject is normally required (2.2 or above). An interview will form part of the selection process" is what is stated on Edge Hill's website in regards to entry requirements.

    Having an OU degree certainly wouldn't put you at a disadvantage when applying for a PGCE or an MA. That said, if you wanted to do a postgrad degree in an aspect of literature that the OU doesn't cover then you might be disadvantaged. I'd advise you to look carefully at the module content. As a rule, OU modules will cover less topics than your average brick uni.
