    Hello, my name is Daniel.

    This is my first topic. I am Spanish, and Soanish is my native language.

    The matter is that I want to study a career here, but I am not sure if is posible. I have not got the "bachiller" or similar studies in my country, so I would like to do them in England.

    I do not if is posible to get A-levels being foreigner, and older than 19 (I am 23 years old).

    I am sorry if I sounded rude, my English is not the better. But I tried. I came here since January without an English basis.

    Yep, you can do A-levels at any age kiddo . A girl in my college started two A-levels aged 21 and will leave aged 23, but there are people much older doing A-levels in order to change career path.

    Hope this helps 👍🏻

    Yes, it helps. But I would like to know futher information.

    Is posible to do A levels in a open school? ( I am not sure if that term exists) or just in presencial class?

    Is a problem if I am not British, (yet)?

    What is the name of the places where can I study? ( I ignore the terms that you use for the buildings?

    I really tried to find this information by myself, but it is quite difficult in my situation.

    Thanks a lot.

    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand. I don't know what an "open school" is or what "presencial" classes are but older international students generally have to study at independent colleges (where you have to pay fees) rather than state schools which are free unfortunately.

    Some that I know of include Ashbourne College, MPW and David Game college in London. They're quite expensive though.

    Sorry, it was completly my fault.

    I meant "b-learning or e-learning"

    If I had the chance to do the A levels by Internet it would be fantastic!
