How Strict are Entry Requirements for foundation degrees?! Watch
Im 19 and have decided to go back to education as I dont see my current job getting me anywhere, and just generally feel that i need more qualifications, So have applied for a foundation degree in computing at the university of brighton.
The only snag is that I dont actually have any AS/A level qualifications, other than key skills IT.
I left my BTEC national diploma in business studies at the end of the first year because I hated the course so I never actually got any solid qualifications from college.
Since leaving college in september 06 I have been at two jobs, both in the computing/IT fields. Do you think that the university would take this experience instead of UCAS points? I think I read somewhere that they only consider work experience if you are over 21. Which seems a bit silly.
I emailed someone at the university and she said that it was worth applying, So I applied in mid december and have yet to hear anything from them..
I really hope they consider me, Im so depressed stuck in this job
I just hope they take my work experience into consideration!
PM me if you need more help. xx
I got on the course!!
