Open University - Full Time Course and Full Time Work watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone,

    I’ve reached a rut in my career and have decided I would like to do an Open University degree in Health Science. I was just wondering if anyone has completed their course full time whilst also working full time or is this just impossible?

    I know I could complete the course in 6 years but it’s just such a long time and ideally I’d like to be done before then, if at all possible. I just can’t afford to be a full time student unfortunately.

    I did the Open University for a year before deciding to wait and apply to a brick University, and I was working whilst doing so. I'd say it's doable, sure, but I'd also say you can't expect to have much of a life outside of work/study for the next 3 years if that's the path you take.

    It requires 30 hours a week and then depending on the degree, two examinations to revise for. It is doable, but I would prioritize classification over time needed unless you are doing the degree for leisure.
