Over the years I have considered a career in Nutrition but I'm the sort of person who tends to change their mind on things. Originally I went to uni to study straight Biology as I thought it was broad and not too specialised in any one aspect. I ended up dropping out after second year due to anxiety and don't wish to return to uni.

Now I'm a bit older and have a bit more experience in what I like than I did when I was 17, I think I would like to go down the Nutrition route. There's two options. First, I return to uni to do a BSc specifically in Nutrition using my remaining 2 years of student finance and fund the rest myself. Or I finish my degree through the OU (Natural Sciences- Biology) and go and do an MSc in Nutrition after that. My worry is that my second year results from uni were awful so I would ideally like to re-do that year but don't know if I'd be able to do that with the OU.

What do you reckon the better option is? Or is it apples and oranges?

If you're absolutely sure now that you want to do nutrition, then why not do a BSc in Nutrition straight away? Also depends on why you were anxious the first time around - do you think it might happen again? If physically going to uni isn't for you, the online degree might be better.
