Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Im a legacy tiff looking to top up my foundation degree to a Bachelors degree with Pompy Uni. Looked into the OU but since i did tiffs course 5 years ago they wont do a credit transfer. Has anyone done it with pompy and if so do they have any advice/tips etc.

    Cheers

  2. I don't know the answer but I want to do this myself in the future. What was the max length of time the OU would let you transfer?
     
  3. If its an engineering degree it has to be 3 years I think, otherwise you can transfer the credits to do an OU degree on pretty much anything, basically a degree for the sake of a degree.

    I couldn't do OU at sea, seemed like every time I picked up my books was the cue for a pipe; "Machinery breakdown" X 3. Enjoyed doing it when ashore before we all went on MTA (stand fast S&S and WU's?)

  5. I did one shorebased overseas and know that it can be a bit of a 'mare. Many of the modern ones are delivered online, so that needs a good connection - Like Navystar!! Also, soem have tutorials online which requires a broadband connection and a good one at that. I found I was doing online tutorials at 2200 o'clock hours, thereby eroding valuable drinking time.

    Good luck to you if you do, but go for a paper-based one. I recall from the dim and distant that the Mission to Seamen, specialise in that sort of thing, and it's free. If all else fails, ask the Schoolie - if they still exist.

  7. Les, I did my degree with Pompey Uni. Go to their website and look for the 'Partnership Programme'. Or pm me.
