Will Exeter Uni accept people with NVQs?Watch
I'm in year 11 and I want to study zoology or animal behaviour at uni in the future and I was planning to go down the route of doing a levels at my local college rather than at school because I feel like I would be unhappy going to a sixth form. However the college has just completely scrapped their a level courses so I'm considering studying a level 3 diploma in animal management or in environmental sustainability but do you think it would be good enough to get into Exeter uni or am I better off sticking it out and doing a levels?
University websites are usually thorough when they talk about entry requirements. In Exeter's case this holds true as they say they will accept Extended Diplomas in a range of subjects, including Animal Management:
You can check if it's the same for other similar courses too (remember that even if it's the same subect there are different options like MSci, placement year, etc.).
