    I moved to the UK since last august and from that time I keeps searching for jobs and sending my CV but unfortunately no one called for interview !!!
    I have a Bsc degree in Information and Communication Technologies Engineering and a Bsc degree in Electronics, Communication and Computer Engineering but not from a UK university. I applied for a lot of apprenticeships and internships but always the reply I got is that my application is unsuccessful although I meet the requirements they need !!!
    I started to believe that there is something wrong with me, I think that I'm not qualified, so is there any courses I should take or anything I should do in order to be qualified for jobs or apprenticeships ??? any help ???
    I thought to apply for post graduate studies like masters degree but I was shocked from the fees as I'm not an EU/UK student so I have to pay double the fees and in some universities the triple with no installments !!

    What about the GCSE and UCAS points ??? most of the apprenticeships require certain GCSE or UCAS points how can I know my GCSE or UCAS points ??

    Thanks a lot and sorry for this long post

    Do you have basic maths and English qualification which are 'valid' here? If not then it may worthwhile doing a quick course/exam at a local college.

    2 other possibilities. maybe rewrite your CV so it is different as it may have just been the format...

    If not you may just be overqualified for the apprenticeship? You could always ask for feedback when they say no next time.
