Open University

I’ve been an Open University student since 2008/09 – mathematics, computing and psychology. Now focusing on BSc(Hons) Computing and IT, earning the Certificate and Diploma along the way.
I moderated TU100’s Café in September 2011. It was an interesting experience – some good discussions and meeting new students. It was also a massive time sink and some students were so disruptive it soured the experience for me.
Earlier in my degree I was the OUSA in the East of England representative for Ipswich and on to the Assembly.
As I set out in this blog post, I don’t want to keep being set back. I needed to plan and adhere to it or not achieve a degree.
