    I am 25 and I completed my high school in 2011 and since then i have been volunteering and travelling. I have been studying through moocs and have a couple of certificates for that.
    So i was wondering how i should apply at the universities in uk and which universities in london would be the best for mature students? Also i have heard about fast track degrees being offered in a few of the uk universities so can you help me in this?

    There is a central online application system called UCAS, used by all public UK universities.

    which universities in london would be the best for mature students?
    All of them will consider mature student applications. However the obvious one to start with, is Birkbeck. That was set up in order to provide degree study to students who didn't come to uni straight from A Level-type school study.

    There are a limited number of these (mainly business-based) at a limited number of unis. You should be able to find them just by Googling.
