    21 isnt an issue, unless you make it one. People are most unlikely to know.

    Making friends from HND is going to have one less year. If its a top up then everyone is more or less new, so more looking to make friends.

    If it was into a third year real then friendship groups are more likely to have formed. People are focused on finishing.

    Hi there

    We admit many students at Westminster who come through the HND route and they will be around 21 at the time of starting their course. Other students will have taken a Foundation Year after A Levels or will have taken gap years. This means that many students are in fact aged 20/21 at the time of entry to University. We also have a small number of Undergrads who are mature students over 21 who may have come through the Access Course route. So you definitely won't be the only person at that age and in fact you may find you cope better with university than other students who are only 18 and have no real life experience.

    Best of luck
