    So basically, I want to know if doing an Apprenticeship and studying for an NVQ in Engineering would still let me get into a Russell Uni at a later date.

    At the minute I am trying to consider all my options because if this will hamper my chances of getting into a good uni then I will look at choosing to study A-levels instead.

    Thanks and feel free to ask for more information if you think it will help

    Many universities don't accept nvq's for entry to courses, so unless you get an accepted BTEC out of the apprenticeship i wouldnt bank on it getting you into university in the future.

    Ah ok, I will email the company and ask them to clarify what my routes are that are available and also see exactly what qualifications are available. Thank you for responding
