Confusion: "Choose Your Modules"

Hi!

I am hoping to complete 'Mathematics and its Learning' with OU. I have registered and am being told to choose my modules.

I can choose MU123, which is 30 credits, but all other modules are unavailable to select. Is there any way around this? I was wanting to do 120 credits a year, not 30!


Also, second question, I already have a degree - when I go on to do a QTS, will providers focus on my first degree or will they focus on the degree I (hopefully) will have got from OU?

Thank you!

Phone them? It may be that you have to complete that before doing others?

When you choose your PGCE [with QTS] you decide which subject to specialise in ...

Yes I did call them and they said what modules I could do alongside Mu123, but I still don't have the option to choose anything else

Also yes I am aware of choosing Pgce specialty, I was just asking if they'll take the OU degree into account or if they'll ignore it and focus on my degree from an actual uni

The OU is a university! One of the maths teachers in my department has an OU degree. You choose the specialism :smile:
