    There are various uni's which will take me to jump straight on to the 3rd year but they're still ex poly's. I don't mind jumping on the 2nd year of a decent uni - but i don't know if thats even possible.
    I'm about to finish off my fdsc in computing this year, i'm predicted a distinction.

    Decide which universities you might like to go to and call their admissions people.

    Slim. Financially, you are not as valuable as a Year 1 entrant to a new university. Also, don't knock ex-polys as 90%+ of all Fd's are accredited by them and the chances are they have allowed you to get this far.

    I think you will be better off going to an ex poly. A foundation degree is really vocational and that is similar to an ex poly degree, so I think you will do better over there. If you get a good degree classification you can still do a Masters in a top university.
