    Very very unlikely. I just got offered a foundation course of engineering at Essex Uni and I have level 3 BTEC's and also 3 years work experience in engineering. Generally you will require level 3 grades at least and/or some decent, related work experience.

    I think he could probably study a level 3 BTEC part time in 2yrs. In the mean time he could have a job and save some funds in a piggy bank for when he is at uni.

    I tried to apply for university with a BTEC L2 in H&SC a few years back, but got rejected immediately and was advised by one of the admissions to do a BTEC Level 3 National Diploma course.

    The unis rarely make an exception for level 2 btecs, the exception being if you have experience in childcare or care in general, and that's usually over a years worth. You could either do a year on a level 3 course and then leave and apply to go onto a foundation course (such as early years) (but try and get the best grades possible if you do go down this route as every grade counts towards uni) or you could do the Acess course if you are over 19, it's a year, but will get you the a levels you need without having to commit to a level 3 (one to two years depending) course if that makes sense? either way, good luck

    No you can get into uni with a level 2 but after that you can go to a year apprenticeship which is equivalent to a level 3 so you can finish at level 2 and do a years of work which helps you get into uni.

    It depends what you have done along side. A girl in my class spent this year doing a 90 credit diploma in health and social care along with a 90 credit diploma in IT. This is equivalent of 3 a levels so she is starting uni this September.
