    I'd check this because I don't think you can even transfer your course - My understading is that if you've paid with Tesco Vouchers and you change your mind you've lost them. You have to be really sure of which course you want to do.

    The registration conditions do allow you to transfer to another course. I did this before in January but it did require several calls to the registration centre, finally having to talk the team leader through the conditions of registration document (March 2009 edition). I was initially told it was impossible and was certainly left with the impression I was the first to manage a transfer.......

    Yes you can. I have done it several times.

    That is Awesome.

    Do I just need to phone Edinburgh to do it.

    I have £200 ILA account and that would mean that I would need £40 clubcard (which I have) for a 30 credit course.

    Would be great to get a few credits on the cheap.
  • Hi, realise this is quite an old thread but thought I would let everyone know that the OU has just changed its policies for clubcard vouchers. Soon you will only be able to use the vouchers to fund a level one course. Obviously this affects all those students in the middle of their degree that fund/part fund with clubcard vouchers. There is a facebook group trying to fight this so that those already studying can finnish their degree using vouchers. Please feel free to join.

    Though surely you have to realise this is not in any way a function of their business, anymore than it is to support people who want to go to theme parks, get car insurance and breakdown cover etc...
