    Hi everyone,
    I am currently an apprentice studying an NVQ level 4 and an FdSc in mechanical engineering. Now this may seem a bit premature (as I have 2 years left) but I was starting to look at future options in terms of 'topping up' to a full degree. So I got a few questions to ask if anyone knows of the answers that would be great.
    Can you go from an FdSc to a BEng?
    And will I be able to do this at any uni?
    What would be the options of doing my last year aboard? Like could I move to America to do my last year.
    Can I become chartered from an FdSc?
    Finally how recognised is an FdSc in other country's?if I decided to carry on working

    Thanks in advance for any answers !
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
