Hi all, I hope I'm posting in the right place. I'm almost 22 and trying to decide what in the world to do with my life. I keep coming back to languages. With one little problem.
As a bit of background, I left school at 15 due to stress and bullying, with no no Highers, and little else. I have a 1 in Standard Grade in French, which counts for little, as I remember nothing of it! I studied up to HNC in Graphic Design in college, then realised it wasn't what I wanted to do with my life. I stuck it out to get my HNC.
I've always wanted to do German, but got stuck with French in school, so I finally took the plunge a few months ago and started a course at the Open Uni. I'm really enjoying it, and I think I've found something I want to continue with. My problem is getting into university.
At the end of the year I will have 30 credits in German, and am hoping to continue to the next level after that. So by next September I'll have 60 credits in German, and a possible 30 in French if I take the beginners course. Then I want to try to get into a "brick" uni, as it's called.
Sorry for the essay, but am I hoping for a miracle here, trying to get into a language degree from scratch? How likely is it I'd be accepted? The only one nearby is Glasgow University, and I can't seem to get into contact with them. I'm prepared to work as hard as it takes.
Thanks for reading, it's appreciated!
What makes you memorable?
