    Hi

    I completed AS Levels in the 2011-2012 academic year with results D (Applied ICT) D (Media Studies) E (Business Studies) (80 UCAS points). I changed colleges to study a BTEC in Sport which I don't really like doing.

    I was wondering whether anyone knows of any universities that offer Foundation Degrees that don't have any A Level/BTEC/NVQ requirements. I'm a Match Official where I officiate in academy games so I have a good level of experience for sport courses.

    Any help would be great cheers

    Have a look on UCAS?

    For foundation courses they seem to want 120 - 160 UCAS points. Some from 1 A Level others don't say.

    Oh dear. Why don't you redo a levels to get some decent grades in decent subjects ? What do you want to study? Redoing a levels will set you off to the right path for the future to a good university and it looks much better

    Try contacting a couple of the Unis with an email and explain your experience, tell them about what quals you do have and ask if a) they'd accept this or b) if not, what would you need to do as a minimum to be considered.

    Thanks for all the replies. I've just emailed Kingston University to ask them and explained my situation. In regards to UCAS, some state they want certain qualifications, others don't but then do on their own website - bizarre! If anyone finds any more out about it then please help me out I'm fed up of doing a course at college that has no relation to what I want to do in university!
