Trying to decide between the above degrees. Law with Psychology is probably more relevant to my career and will help when I go onto MA level (want to study for MA in careers guidance) but I'm drawn to the PPE degree as it sounds very interesting.
Is there a well paid career path in ma career guidance? Can career guidance be completed as undergrad?does it need to be pg If you Know career guidance is desired outcome does it need a degree then pg?
The MA is in Career Coaching/guidance and I would do it in addition to my current role (self employed). You need a masters degree you can't do an undergrad degree in that area. I'm in no particular hurry and fancy doing a degree for my own enjoyment, it wouldn't just be as a means to get to do the Masters.
Ideally I would like to work with teenagers and young adults but the work just isn't there anymore and the content of the MA has been changed to reflect that. Therefore I would mainly offer career management services to individuals and companies, this complements what I do already.
In this current climate I think it is good to have a diverse portfolio of skills and if the career guidance doesn't work out or I decide to jack in the self employed work a Law degree could prove to be extremely useful in changing direction.
A good proportion of the UG curriculum is the same where ever you study, as they have to cover all the elements that will gain them accreditation with the The Law Society.
So to me, what you need to be looking for is the additional stuff. The OU law degree has a 91% satisfaction rate, and this data is provided independently via the National Student Survey. They have an excellent reputation and are unlikely to go out of business suddenly.
As far as I am aware BPP all you can get from them in a sales pitch. There is no verifiable evidence that they are any good at all. One of the major issues in the US is that they have extremely high drop out rates, and are basically making profits from students that never finish their degrees.
The parent company is in trouble, and as a private business, they can do what they like at any time.
