#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

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?)

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.

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