Advice on alternative routes into teaching

    Hi there.

    I just withdrew from university after (almost) completing 3 years of a Primary Ed degree. The 3rd year was full placement and a clash in personality with my tutor led to me giving up.

    I have already realised how much I regret this mistake, and wondered if anybody has any advice on alternative routes? I thought about transferring my credits over to OU, completing a degree and then applying for a PGDE but I wasn't sure if universities will accept OU as a valid degree.

    Any and all advice appreciated, thank you!

    [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions] is accepted in most other unis I know of.

    Some have said it is as hard to complete as oxbridge.

    I would say transfer two years credit over to them. Speak to open uni for more assistance.

    Good luck
