Finishing a University Degree after many years

I'm wondering if there is any information anywhere about completing a university degree 15 years after dropping out after 2 years of the course completed?

Answered by Alison Patterson
You must write to the University where you completed the first two years. They may be able to provide you with a transcript so that you can let other universities know the standard of attainment reached or they may agree to re-admit you.

I would say you need something from the original university in the form of documentary evidence and perhaps advice.

You may have to start again and go through UCAS but it is worth getting advice informally first. Call a few universities and ask them how they would view your request.

Good luck
