The Access module was fantastic. It really is an introduction to online University-style learning and gives you a taster of different elements of the degree, like law, business, HR, and marketing. Completing it boosted my confidence and helped me to see that I was much more capable than I thought.
To anyone considering studying an Access module, I would thoroughly recommend it for boosting your confidence and getting your brain back into learning-mode. It helps you to appreciate how capable you really are. And I honestly think that if you can do the Access module, you can do a degree, so go for it!
I am quite a risk averse person, but the MBA gave me a real sense of confidence. As with any new company there are challenges to face but having the MBA under my belt meant I was more empowered to tackle challenges and overcome those hurdles.
OU study is really rewarding and opens doors to lots of opportunities. It does require self-determination, but there’s flexibility available to make it easier to fit your studies around your other commitments.
