    Hey guys, I would like to study philosophy at degree level but don't have any A levels. I was looking at access to higher education courses and it seems a good route but it's also very unclear what I can do with this qualification.

    This is what I'm thinking of taking http://www.shrewsbury.ac.uk/courses/access_to_he

    Will this get me onto a philosophy degree?
    Is there a better way for me to go about things?

    I'm pretty sure you can apply for pretty much anything with an access course(save from medicine maybe) and receive an offer,provided you get the grades necessary.
    There have been students who have gone on to do law,literature and history (on this very website) after the AHE, so I don't see why philosophy would be any different.
    Oxford;Kings;UCL etc are all willing to consider the Access Course as well ,so I don't believe you will be in any way disadvantaged.
