    I really like the idea of University and the whole lifestyle, but the only course i could do there is Public Services, would it still be worth going? i don't know if it will be a waste of a qualification, if anyone would have any experience with this course or knows anyone that does it would be a huge help as i don't know what to do..

    Any advice is greatly appreciated

    Law? I don't think many decent universities would accept someone into Law with a BTEC in Public Services

    Go to www.whatuni.com and try entering some subject words like 'social', 'policy' etc - you'll be surprised what other courses are available.

    Also look at www.notgoingtouni.com for all the other options open to you.

    All this is great but i am looking at the Public Service course itself and if anyone knows the benefits of taking it with any experience, or if it is a waste of time, and yes i would like a job in the Public Services but i don't know if they look for a degree

    What EXACTLY do you want to do? What job? What area of work? Public Services is a massive area - everything from Social Work to Ambulance Driver and the Tax Office. See https://jobs.civilservice.gov.uk/company/nghr/jobs.cgi
