Hi Naz,

Thanks for posting. Prior education and meeting entry requirements can be a hard thing, especially when you've been out of school for a while and in the workforce. However, as your work has been in a related are to what you want to study, some universities will take work experience into consideration as well. You should talk with the universities directly to see if they may have some more information on this.

If not, there are many online courses and qualifications that could prepare you with the necessary prerequisites for undertaking a degree. Again, perhaps the best idea would be to talk to the university admission staff to see what they suggest and what kind of qualification/knowledge they will accept.

Good luck!

Josh, team
