    Hi, I left school and went into the Plumbing and Heating industry for 4 years, I now want to become a Quantity Surveyor. Because I never went to college I do not have any UCAS points.
    I was wondering if anyone knew of another way how I could get into university to do this? As this is one of my dreams. Unfortunately I made the wrong career choice when leaving school.

    Thanks for your help.

    You could always see if there are any courses at college you can do which could link you into a QS degree. I did an access to degree course to study QS and I got conditionals from 4/5 uni's I applied for - the ONLY uni that said I needed more UCAS points was Westminster. The access course I did took me 6 months (it usually takes a year however) and they did not request any sort of criteria - basically if you wanted to do it, no one would stop you.

    There are also job options - you have work experience in a relatable field - there are some companies who will employ you as an apprentice and put you through your degree. Go onto the RICS website and look into it.

    There are lots of different options really. UCAS points aren't that important!
