    Afternoon all,

    I am looking to do a undergrad degree in physics or astronomy / planetary science with open uni.
    I have an access to HE in health science but that.s all that would be even closely relevant.
    I am 27 and married with a young child so doing a full time course would probably be too difficult.
    I am trying to find other mature students who either using open uni or a full time course? find out how you are doing it? funding?
    I can get funding from the military to do the majority of the course then self fund towards the end, but this is something i need to weigh up, full time or part time.
    Also my only choose of universities would be Worcester, Cardiff or Bristol.
    Thanks all,

    If possible, look into part time study. At the same time, you can take care of your family, or work a few hours if needed. The Open University might be a good option as you can do distance learning but you don't have to commute or move away from home. Have a look on their website to see what funding options are available (if any) and what prerequisites they are looking for.
How are you feeling about your exams?
