Hi Guys

I'd like to know what do I have to do to access to the uni here in the UK as a Spanish foreign.

I actually do work & live in the UK.


I'd like to study Business Management (Marketing) or Business Management (IT)
I was wondering if Exeter University, OPEN UNIVERSITY or anywhere else.

Many thanks

Yes as an EU national then you can access our education system on a par with UK students. All unis will consider your application assuming you have the grades.

You should have lived in the EU for three years prior to the course starting for fees only or five years in the UK if you want fees and maintenance. Also if you are working and continue to do so then you can try for fees and maintenance under the migrant workers scheme.

I actually hold Bachelor's degree and I work as a Business Developer, I'd like to study Business Management but the closest uni I've got here is Exeter... was wondering if they would accept me or it's more likely that I'll end up applying for OU.

You will no get state funding if you already have a degree. If you had included that important information in your OP then I would have told you that then.

https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies

They will accept you if you have the grades.

You will need to pay for it yourself.

You can try to do a masters for which there is a postgrad loan.

Hi mate

I didn't know that a Bachelor's degree was something important to mention, I apologize for not mentioning that earlier.

However I can't see what grades do they ask for, i.e: http://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergraduat...y-requirements

Idk what does that mean: GCSE Maths grade B (level 5 new grading) or GCE AL/AS Maths, Pure Maths or Further Maths or IB SL4 Maths/Maths Studies or Core Maths; GCSE English Language grade B (level 5 new grading).

Are they reffering to my bachelors marks? and if so what do these GCSE GCE IB mean?

Thanks in advance!

They refer to the English system of qualifications.
GCSE 15-16 year olds
GE 17-18

The International Baccalaureate(IB) is 17-18 year olds.

Those are the grades they require.

You will need to contact them to ask what equivalent grades they want for someone from Portugal.

It appears this is called. Diploma de Ensino Secundario (previously known as Certificado do 12ano) It might be anything from a 16 to a 19.

You should contact the international team.
