You’ll start Stage 1 with 60 credits from a wide choice of introductory modules. This can include Making your learning count (YXM130), a 30-credit module which gives you the chance to count study from a variety of subjects towards your qualification. All introductory modules are worth 30 or 60 credits, and have been carefully selected to develop your subject knowledge and study skills in preparation for further OU study.
To complete this qualification, you’ll choose a further 60 credits from a wider selection of Stage 1 modules. Many students focus broadly on one discipline, such as science or the humanities – but there’s nothing to stop you studying modules from entirely different subject areas.
