I've just finished the Education Studies (Primary) degree through the OU. Lots of us studied fulltime and a lot of people were working fulltime as TAs too. It's tough and you'd need to be very organised and willing to give up most of your social life between October and June each year...but it is doable. My advice would be to study fulltime for level 1 and 2 and swap to part time for level 3. It would take 4 years but allow you to really do your best at level 3 when it counts the most. Good luck whatever you decide.

The hours each week vary. Year 1, and even Year 2, I found I often didn't need the number of hours they suggested (they say 28-36 hrs/wk if studying fulltime) unless there was an assignment due. However, in Year 3 some weeks were full on, especially when 2 assignments were due, and I went well over. Everyone's different though and some people seemed to zoom through their work in half the suggested time while others were up 'til 2am each night! There are OU forums where tutors and other students can support you but also unofficial Facebook and WhatsApp groups which loads of people join and find really useful.

Hello thank you for the information it's a route I have not looked into yet. However i do work 30 hours so unfortunately this route wouldn't work for me as I couldn't attend a brick university and would need to study outside my working hours which has made me look into the open university
Thank you for the reply,

In this case we wish you the best of luck and hope some of the other posts in this forum has been helpful in providing further information about the Open University.

Tom
