    I ve recently finished up a dental nursing nvq level 3. Whilst useful I do not wish to further peruse a dental nursing career. I m 18 and started the course when I was sixteen ergo have no a- levels. I didn t take a levels as I wanted to enter the working world and avoid uni debt but now I see the benefits may outweigh the negatives. I would like to enter some form of higher education. What are my options/ is it possible? Thanks

    An access to higher education course, though many have minimum age requirements of 19 or more and funding it could be an issue.
    Do plenty of research and have a plan because not all access courses are created equal - make sure your chosen access course is acceptable to your intended university
