In short the answers is YES!

A BTEC Level 3 qualification is no different to A Levels when it comes to applying to University. If you've heard anything that says otherwise, feel free to ignore it!

BTECs are just as valuable as A Levels and make you a great uni candidate. They follow a very similar pattern to university courses, with deadlines, essays, coursework and research. This means BTECs are really preparing you for university life.

More than 100,000 BTEC students apply to UK universities each year, so don’t worry about not having done the more traditional A Levels. To most universities, A Levels and BTECs are of equal worth.

If you haven't applied yet you can make an application through Clearing as soon as you get your results, which is usually about a month before A Level students.

This isn't completely true. For example, Edinburgh will only take people with a BTEC if they've done A-levels alongside it. I'm pretty sure Imperial and LSE don't accept them at all.

It's important that an applicant does their own research and knows what the universities they're interested in want.
