Information on U.E/tertiary options for home educated students needed

From Cynthia Hancox: http://www.cynthiahancox.com/uploads/1/8/7/6/18766422/4363693.jpg

Do you have a child who has gained entry to University (or Polytech) in the last 3 or so years, or struggled to do so? I need your help….(please share with regional groups)
I’m planning to write up current information on U.E/tertiary options for homeschool students. Things have changed quite a bit in the last few years, with entry to uni and in some cases polytechs becoming tougher, at least on the face of it. I would love to hear from anyone who is willing to share:
*What uni/polytech their child gained entry to
*What degree or program of study they entered
*How old they were, and in what year they gained entry
*How they gained entry – what qualification or other options were used to meet entry requirements?

If your child could NOT gain entrance to their choice of tertiary program, I’d like to hear about your experiences too.

If you could please send this information to me via my Contact page, it would be greatly appreciated. http://www.cynthiahancox.com/contact.html

Your information will be used to inform me as I check current options and write them up. No personal stories or information will be shared, unless I have your express permission to do so and it is relevant to what I write up. Data may be collated and shared as totals – eg X number of homeschool students gained entry via Y out of those responding.
