    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!

    In your shoes, I'd contact the Sussex Philosophy Admissions Tutor and ask. Different unis/courses have different entry criteria for mature students. They can even be decided on a case-by-case basis - when I started my degree aged 44 I didn't have to do an Access course, but the other mature student on my course had been required to do one.

    Email address for the person in quesiton at Sussex is at the bottom right:

    Good luck!

    Thank you so much for your help.

    I'm going to send them an email so at least then I know officially the correct path.

    Is there any mature philosophy students out there?
