In 1995 I graduated with a 1st Class BSC. in Business Information Technology. After a successful career in IT consultancy then IT Business Management/Sales I wish to change careers to Environmental Consultancy, which needs a Environmental Science degree or similar.

I recognize that I will need to top up my study skills and work very very hard but I wish to avoid doing a foundation year (Maximum Course Fee) or even an access course (Reduced Course Fee) as I will be funding the course fee and living myself. No loan for a second degree.

What do people think? Do people have experience of applying with a similar profile to me? Having realized that there is a UCAS application deadline of Jan 26th I urgently need to decide my route to attending university.

If you study part time then you’ll usually be eligible for funding for a second degree in a stem subject.

Are you in a position to pay cash for a full time course? Have you looked at open university courses?
