    Hi guys and gals,

    Im a 30 year old chap who sold out at the early age of 17 to pursue the corporate world and rise the ranks in retail management. However after some considerable thought and ponder, and years of reading psychology and philosophical books I have decided I would like to return to study to pursue these subjects.

    I would eventually like study a philosophy degree but would like to ask the best path to this.

    As I left school without a levels should I pursue some distance learning a levels? I was thinking pschology, philosophy and Religion. Or should I do an acces course. I would eventually like to apply to Sussex.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you wanted to eventually apply to Sussex for Philosophy, then maybe have a look into Access to HE courses. The Sussex website mentions them in their entry requirements for Philosophy here: http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergr...ophy/index.htm

    They also offer Philosophy and Cognitive Science, if that interests you.

    Also, have you considered the Open University? http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergr...ophy/index.htm

    Doing A levels again may not be that useful, because the Access course is tailored to mature students with non-standard qualifications. Personally - I'd try for the access to HE course and consequently apply to Sussex.

    Hope this is helpful. Good luck with applications etc .
