    Hi guys,

    Due to a number of personal/financial reasons I dropped out of 6th form to pursue an apprenticeship to help support my family. However I am currently a few months in and realising that I wish that I stuck with 6th form and completed my A levels, for a while I thought all hope was lost regarding my LSE dream until I stumbled across the access to higher education course so I really need some information regarding the course and anyone who is currently at LSE after completing the course,

    Firstly is there a minimum age limit? As I am currently only 17 and will be looking to start the course when I am 18/19.

    I am interested in taking economics, what course would I have to complete?

    And also any other information regarding the course will be more then helpful

    Thanks

    I don't know much about this 'access to higher education course', but I can tell you that there is no lower age limit. I know many 17 year old freshers, and even a 17 year old masters student!

    The Access to Higher eduction course is highly regarded by some top universities, particularly, by LSE, it shows enthusiasm and passion to return to eduction. However, if you want to study Economics, then you would need an A level Math, and most Access to HE courses do not offer A level math. If you can find one, great! If not, then you will have to put extra effort and study it on your own, and aim for an A or A*.

    For funding reasons, Access to HE generally accepts people 19+
    As for LSE, I enquired and as previously mentioned, they wanted maths A level as well as an Access to HE.
