4 years of / spent for my BSc

Hi,

Question:
Should I use “of or spent for”

Sentence:
It is the reward for my effort over the 4 years of / spent for my BSc.



My opinion:
I think “spent for” is more suitable.
However, a native speaker suggests that “of” is more suitable.
Any comments?

Thanks

    You can say "...over the four years of my BSc", but as entangledbank says, with spend the correct preposition is on: "...over the 4 years spent on my BSc."
