I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Following on from CM, for an OU degree my daughter is doing 120 pts per year with the OU and working too. She has 2 children too.

One of my sergeants also did his OU degree in 3 years.

Pick your courses carefully. My environmental degree was pretty straightforward. My history degree was far harder. The OU publishes exam stats each year - numbers starting a course, percentage of starters taking the exam, percentages passing at each grade level.

One course might have 9% at level 1, 35 at level 2, 45% at level 3 etc. In contrast another might have 17, 60, 20 for instance. If you want an easy Open degree picking your courses can make it painless.

Contact the OU, they may offer staff studies credits.

Can your employer subsidize your study?
