    This isn't something anyone can answer for you on TSR - you need to contact universities you're interested in and ask them if they'll accept applications for Marketing degrees from someone with a level 3 apprenticeship.

    Your qualifications are very practically focused so it might be that more theoretical degrees would be less likely to accept them. https://www.cim.co.uk/more/get-into-marketing/ is a good place to look to find industry accredited and focused marketing degrees.

    Thanks, I have been emailing schools, I was just hoping some people might have had similar experiences as it's only 10 days until application is due, and I have only heard back from one of the schools i've contacted.
