    I am doing an Apprenticeship doing Graphic Design, I am 17 and my contract with the employer finishes in September 2016 and I am now thinking about what I will be doing after my course should I not get a permanent job. I will be getting a Business Administration National Extended Diploma level 2&3 so I was wondering if I could get into a Uni with this?

    You need level three qualifications to get into university, so the level 2 won't cut it. As for the other, your best bet is to contact universities you are interested in directly and ask them if they will accept it.

    Thanks for your reply, I didn't think that the Uni's would be bothered about the Level 2 but I really want to get more on my CV. Hopefully I can find someone who has had the same experience as me. I have emailed some Unis and the National Careers advice centre. I am happy to do some studying this year to get me a qualification to get into Uni but it's hard trying to find which course I would need.

    Well, the traditional route would be A levels and an art foundation course, or the BTEC equivalent to A levels. If you were a bit older, then an Access course would be the thing, but you aren't in that bracket. I'm afraid qualifications other than A levels aren't my area.

    no, you need level three so i would recommend doing just a year art foundation and i know uni such as nottingham trent will take you on
