I'm currently in S4 in Scotland completing my National 5s. I'm on a dependent visa because of my dad's job and because of visa issues I decided that I will go to university straight after S5 (so I'm not doing S6). I want to study at uni in England and because I would have only had completed my highers at that point, I was wondering if top English universities (like UCL, Imperial College London, Cambridge, etc.) take Scottish highers for their entry requirements. If it helps, I want to study astrophysics or aerospace engineering (or something similiar).

For Imperial College London, it doesn't say anything about Scottish Highers, it only says the entry requirements for Advanced Highers. UCL doesn't have an aerospace engineering course and I'm still researching into Cambridge so I'm not sure about that. Sorry

They do accept Highers as a qualification, but to meet their minimum requirements you also need to have advanced highers, so would need to stay on until S6 if you wanted to apply to those unis. You'd be able to apply to plenty of courses at Scottish unis though if you don't want to do S6.
