    If I study one subject in college, would I be able to study a completely unrelated subject at university? For example if I had achieved level 3 NVQ in Catering, could I then go to study Business Management, or Psychology, or Nursing, etc.

    It does vary, but generally the subjects have to be similar. So you'll need science subjects to study nursing, and an easy subject or maths for business. If you're conspiring catering then you'll ideally be wanting to study catering related subjects.

    Alternatively, you could look at doing an A Level alongside. If you do something like English or maths it will keep more subjects open to you

    Just do some research by looking at the course requirements. They may want specific qualifications to do a certain degree because the knowledge is buily on, they tend to be similar for each subject, but there are slight variations between unis. Just use some common sense.

    Will give you an idea, but you should always checj the specific uni.
