I'm having a bit of difficulty assessing my chances of admission into universities in the UK (Particularly Scotland!) as a EU resident.. Realistically speaking I would like to see if I actually do have a chance as an apparent "adult learner" at getting into my choices.

Name: Jose
Age :29
Nationality/residence: Lisbon, Portugal
Pretended degree: Bsc in Biological Science (Cellular/molecular biology)
Preferred universities: Glasgow, Dundee,Strathclyde,Aberdeen (all are subject to change depending on reality of admission chances! I do have a preference for Scottish Universities)

Current education - Diploma de Ensino Secundario (Portuguese high school final score = 14.5 / 20, with a 17/20 score in Biology and 18/20 in English on final national examinations.

I also have an American GED (is that relevant at all?)

No one can predict your chances! Apply where you find the course interesting and meet the entry requirements.

You're more likely to be accepted to a uni where you'll actually have to pay money.

The guidance for universities on non-UK qualifications is here: https://www.ucas.com/sites/default/f...ifications.pdf

Your high school scores are good and likely to get you entry - although most universities might ask you to have some recent study (preferably in English) to show that you're still capable.

Contact the universities you're interested in and ask them if they would like to see anything more recent and if so what.

I do not mind paying the tuition if accepted! It isn't overbearing and I believe in helping where you can (and helping yourself get into the desired university seems more than enough motivation to dish out 1,4K pounds a year TBH)

How is it we should
