Was just wondering as to whether anyone has ever applied to/and been accepted by a university in the U.K. (Any of the three countries) with QQI Level 5's? Not doing nursing, would like to do psychology but a few that I have emailed have said they don't accept them. Has anyone had any luck? I am well over the age for mature student eligibility, however, when I was in Ireland i did one year of a bachelors degree in economics and was forced to drop out because of circumstances beyond my control. I desperately want to go to college, do you think they'd accept me as a mature student if they won't accept my awards if I explain myself or is there just a general rule across all university boards that you cannot apply for mature student status if you've already attended third level? Any help would be appreciated.
