With that amount of time in the Forces why not go straight for an MSc using your ELCs to fund most of the tuition and let your budget holder pay your T&RE.. City Uni in London does a great set of 3 MSc courses in Air Transport Mgt, Air Maint Mgt and Air Safety Mgt. Your Mil service will qualify you to do the MSc without the schoolboy BSc.

It'll take some effort but well worth it
Agree with rej.

I finished my MSc in 2010 after less than 2 years (whilst deploying every 6 months). I have never been short of work, and neither have my fellow students.

You're right PN, but I believe the OU will look at any previous experience, so the OP might have a go. I have certainly seen 'old' courses on the list about 5 years back when I was doing mine. I used my 1978 Cert Ed and got 120 off L1!

120 off L1 is no L1 to do. Given the horror of many L1 courses that can only be good!

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

I managed to bring in 60 from Lincoln but my ISS was too old and there was no mention of other experiences. Downside of porting is not getting a particular named degree. However I then found I could double up and use half my first degree towards a second so got a BSc half-price.
