Who is CATS for?

The unique structure of the CATS programme means that it is appropriate for people with a wide range of needs, from those wishing to study for an Honours degree, Masters or other Postgraduate award to those who wish to study for interest only.

Studying for an Honours degree Many students choose to study for an Honours degree through the CATS programme as its flexibility suits their needs. CATS allows you, for example, to choose a combination of subjects not offered on another programme. It also allows you to vary your pace of study according to your needs and availability. In addition, CATS allows you to transfer credits from another institution and if appropriate, to accumulate credit from learning gained from your work experience.

Case Study

I was at the Open University, working full-time and I was studying two modules. I passed both modules but I wanted to switch because I was interested in doing some Advertising and PR. I was made redundant and was looking for part-time study and that's when I found out about CATS.

‘ ’’‘

The best thing about the programme is the variety of modules available and the flexibility. I'm quite a diverse person and I do get easily bored - I tend to jump from thing to thing. With the CATS programme I can fashion my own recipe and gear it around what I want to do and all skills that I want to get - because I've worked in the real world and I know what I need.

This time last year I didn't know what my career aspirations were. I wanted to be in marketing because it seemed to tick all the boxes. I've come from quite an arty background and the more I thought about marketing the more I thought that sounds like me. Since I've come here and I've seen all the modules on offer, I think that I've actually figured out what I want to do. I want to do Marketing and Media - so more of the creative arts, as I want to do production as well. It's the more outgoing side of marketing I like - the promotional strategy as opposed to the number crunching. I'd like to run my own small business that has an element of marketing campaigns, promotions and media production.
