    have you considered studying from home?

    look at the open university :thumbsup::-D

    It depends on which university you are looking at and the course - Email their admissions department and ask is the best advice .
    Good luck

    I went back to Uni at the same age. I enquired about the courses I was interested in and got the info back on what I needed to gain entry. I had to attend night school as my qualifications were too old.

    I had to have a Access to H.E as I only really had 1 GSCE. I did the Access course and a couple of GCSE's along side, got into Uni no trouble, They have a set amount of places set aside for mature students

    thanks guys im gonna email the uni's and find out what i have to do

    I got accepted last week for a Sept 09 place at cov uni I have A levels from over 20 yrs ago but they have also asked for recent proof that I am able to study. Just completed my CLAIT plus diploma so they have accepted that . They are much more flexible with "mature students" - but something like an "access" course or recent exam, even at GCSE level will definitely help
