Hi, I want to study Engineering but I have picked the wrong A Levels . My local college offers a 2 year HND in Mechanical Engineering or a 2 year Foundation Degree. The HND is around £1,000 and would be payed by my parents but I want to save student finance for my proper degree! Is it worth taking 2 years out then going to uni? I will be 24/5 when I am out of education is that reasonable?

Have you considered an integrated foundation year? It would mean doing one extra year at uni before going on to start the main degree, and it's all funded by student finance
e.g. http://www.manchester.ac.uk/undergra...-requirements/

I think if you do a hnc/hnd course you can sometimes just top it up to a full degree by going into uni at the final year of the course which would be the 2 year hnc/hnd + 1 year at uni. I'm not entirely sure what degrees this works for but I'm looking at something similar in sport since I also chose the wrong a levels.

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
