    Hi,
    Well im nearly 21 and thinking about going to university. I have decent grades in GCSE's and i think i would be able to work confidently towards a degree.

    I do only have GCSE's, at the time when everyone else in my year group were applying for Sixth Form and then going on to University i didnt have the opertunity. (due to personal reason) I have been to College and completed a 2 year course and also work full tiem in customer service, but have realised that i would like to go to university to study Midwifery.


    Is it possible to apply for uni with only GCSE's and Level 1&2 VTCT qualifications in Hair & Beauty?

    Sadly not, ypu would need to get a decent level 3 qualification (e.g. A levels, Access or even BTEC) all the universities require a level 3 qual. Even if you have 20 A*s in GCSE, you would still need a level 3 qual.

    What course are you planning to do?

    Possibly, you'd have to phone up unis, a lot of unis for midwifery might ask for BBB in alevels or other qualifications, it is best to find out from each respective university

    Best thing to do is an access course, like the person above said, you need a level 3 qualification to be able to go to university.
    You could possible do a foundation degree at university depending on the entry requirements and course choice, so you could look into that.

    Access courses are designed for people exactly like you - mature students, few qualifications / no recent study, and wanting to go to uni. They're subject area specific, and will teach you what you need to know, and give you the qualifications that you need to get into uni. They're taught at FE colleges, so as your local college(s).
