    Thank you for the information.

    Currently, I'm studying at Arab Open University, and I don't even know if my university is recognized. Although it's a branch from Open University UK. Apparently my course is 4 years, the first year covers the government's requirements.

    Btw, hopefully if I finish at age 28, are my chances lower of getting admission into University of Leeds ?

    What other certifications and qualifications do I need to increase my chances of entering University of Leeds.

    There is no harm in dropping the university an email enquiring

    And age should be no problem at all! Many people who study postgrad don't go straight from their undergraduate degree! I would love to do my masters one day, but the likeliness is I would have to work for a few years between my first degree and my masters to be able to finance it! My mother didn't do her undergraduate degree until she was nearly 30!

    To help strengthen your application maybe try and build up a portfolio in your spare time, that helps to show your skills and progression. As I don't know what your course entails, maybe just consider doing projects, applying your skills. Anything additional you do helps to add strength to your application But as long as you get a 2:1 in your degree and have the relevant English qualifications you should be fine!

    Thank you for your timely response. Are you also doing a degree in computer science ? UK is a very expensive place to study and live in.......I presume earning twice the budget, predicted, would keep me at least on the safe side *sigh*. Portfolio ? By portfolio, you intent to mean references

    I do not! Hence why I suggested you drop the university an email asking for more information I study International Business!

    I'm luckily a home student so I don't have to pay such horrific fees and I can get a loan, but I plan to do my masters in Finland. I adore the country and they offer free masters courses, taught in English.

    By portfolio I sort of mean a collection of your work. Say you did a really good project as part of your degree, or made some computer program or something, make a note of it, and keep all that information together so you can present it if you received an interview
