Hi, I am doing BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma, and I want to go to the top universities mainly near London, which accept BTEC as well not including A-level. It would be really helpful if universities give scholarship. Also I would like to study abroad during some time in the degree. I want to ask if I can go to universities which are really good, and if they have the benefits listed above?.

Any university that isn't a Russel group uni will accept BTECs because your BTEC grades will be converted into UCAS tariffs.
The following are Russell Group universities:
University of Birmingham
University of Bristol
University of Cambridge
Cardiff University
Durham University
University of Edinburgh
University of Exeter
University of Glasgow
Imperial College London
King's College London
University of Leeds
University of Liverpool
London School of Economics & Political Science
University of Manchester
Newcastle University
University of Nottingham
University of Oxford
Queen Mary, University of London
Queen's University Belfast
University of Sheffield
University of Southampton
University College London
University of Warwick
University of York

Any uni that isn't on this list accept BTECs and UCAS points. So you can research good universities that aren't on this list.

There are many great universities out there. Keep looking and attend open days.

Russell Group has nothing to do with which qualifications they accept. If a course accepts tariff points, or sets offers based on tariff points, it will say so on the course page.
Other times, they may accept specific grades in BTEC without converting it back to tariff points. It varies between courses between universities, it is not RG vs non-RG.

I was just about to say, I know tons of Russel group universities that accept BTECS, them being Russel Groups have absolutely nothing to do with what qualifications they accept. I applied and got offers to a few Russel Group universities last year (and I have BTEC's...)

As a completely random example, here is the info for Law at Exeter:

They accept BTEC at D*DD for that.

It'll vary between universities - some may require A-level maths (e.g. King's), for which BTEC won't be equivalent. Some don't, like Queen Mary or City - but may require a certain grade in GCSE maths. If you have a list of unis you're interested in, check the page on the website for the A&F - that's all I've had to do to get this info.
