I Need To Get My Bachelor / honours degree HELP!

Posted by Beckys_Mom , 26 May 2006 · 237 views

Hey

I have been wanting to sit and study Psychology And I am so egar to get my BSc (honours degree) I want to do this ...reallly really want to do this, now that I am only working part time.....I have been wanting this for a long time but as I have always worked full time I never got around to doing it...now I can...I want to be a shrink LOL weird huh??

I have what it takes, and I am a great listener, I love to help people...its a passion of mine and I believe I can do this, now that I have the time

Here's the tricky part

I went on line to the Open University....downloaded the info I need

Got the price list and DAMN its expencive....the entire courses come to a total of 4580 (approx $9000) just to do the courses...they are done in 3 levels

Each level has a number of modules...I can chose one or two of the modules and each module costs between 295(aprox $580) - 595 (approx $900) each...and the ones priced 595 are the best ones to study!!

As I have bills to pay like my mortgage(mortgage costs 478 = approx $895) not including my rates...and the car insurance ect ect ...ect.credit card bills...cell phone cards...fuel...food...broadband ..sky tv ...my loan...garys car loan (almost paid but its still a lil left to pay on that) ..I cant afford to hand that kind of dosh over....so I looked up to see if I could get a student grant...the goverment only allows you 1100 if you are lucky WTF???

I so want to get my degree...my heart is set on it...and when Geri has her heart set on something like an exam/degree...I pass with flying colors...and get what I wanted from that exam/test

But I would like to see a much better way to get my degree and have easy payments

I tried ICS and they are just as bad...they are looking 300 (aaprox $570) a month...I cant pay that...I have bills to pay and mouths to feed...if I pay that after all my bills are paid and my food, electricty ect is paid for...I have enough to keep me going till next payday...but I drive too and I am trying to save for my holiday..so if i where to pay out 300 a month on top of what I already pay out ..I would have very little for myself!!!

Anyone got any ideas on how I can get to study and get my degree with lower payments?? I have a savings account but that money is for our holiday and Becky..so I am forbidden to touch that!!!


My mom wants me to be a lawyer...she has done for years...all becuase my teachers told her I would make a great lawyer...I have studied a bit on LAW...I like it....but even if I did deside to go for my Bachelor of Laws degree...it costs a lot more eeeepppppppppp and I am talking 2000 ($3700 odd)  more !!!...and it something I KNOW I can do too

I am sick of kitchen designs I want to do betterLOL  tongue.gif

So if anyone knows of anything...please let me know...I am pulling my hair out over here LOL  wacko.gif

Work full time and go to school part time.  It's hard but that's the way I did it.

Hi there,

I am a student with the Open University doing a BSc Psychology Degree. I can't recommend the OU enough!!! It is perfect and totally geared up for people who are juggling many things in life, family, work etc. I would get in touch with them and ask about the fees. You can qualify for help if you earn under a certain amount. There is also alterntive methods available in how you pay, like interest free monthly payments.

I have always been a full time worker up untill I came back off maternity leave in March this year and it pays better to go part time...when I was full time and all the late nights I was working, I didn't have the time to go to night school either, besides I am a new mother and I want to spend some time with my child original.gif
