hi everyone, hope you are all well! im currently thinking about taking an access course to get into teacher training. ive been out of school for two years and working in a bank....now 20 years old. im at a complete loss just now as i never listened when i was doing my A-levels, just sat with my fingers in my ears saying 'la la la...im not going to uni ever!'

so heres where i need your help....where i live is near the border between england and scotland, if i do my access course in edinburgh can i go to an english uni?

also some told me to apply to www.gttr.ac.uk? but im not a graduate so why should i?

any info would be grateful. ta. x

Hi, and well done on grabbing the bull by the horns ( so to speak) on a change of career

Firstly, I would ring the uni`s that you are interested in applying to and find out what they except as entry requirements ( I dont know personally if an acess course will be judged differently in England and Scotland- though I doubt it ). You could also approach your local college for guidance advice such as evening courses ( if you want to work and study at the same time) etc...

I have to say, I really enjoyed my time at college and made some fab friends on the way. I have found that my self-esteem has grown immensely in the past year and I cannot believe that I will be going to uni in September:eek:

Good luck xx
