    Hi guys!

    I was thinking of studying a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Fashion next year.

    The Uni that I hope to study at is UAL on the Fashion: Fashion Design and Marketing BA (Hons) and they ask for a BTEC National Diploma in their requirements. Is the Level 3 Extended Diploma a National Diploma?

    Also, does anyone have experience of this BTEC? If so what was it like?


    Hello,The BTEC National Diploma is worth 2 A Levels,but the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma is worth 3,but only if you get a high enough Profile,EG,Merit,Merit Distinction,or Distinction,Distinction* Distinction*.Every course and every Uni will specify different admission criteria related to the BTEC.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
