It’s over.. after all the stress and struggling that came along with doing my degree, I can now officially say I hold a Bsc (Honours) Open in Law & Social Science.
Despite the ups and downs of my journey; and the way my heart sank when it became clear that no official ceremony would be taking place. The tears that rolled down my cheeks and ran salty into my mouth, were ironically some of the sweetest tears I’ve ever shed in my life, as the realisation that I’d handed in my last piece of work and had done enough to qualify sank in.
Gaining my degree is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. In completing and staying the course, I learned so much about myself. This degree showed me strengths I never knew I had.
Thank you OU for allowing me to take my degree with you.
I’m honoured to be alumni to one of the best most forward thinking long running distance learning institutions in the world.
