    Colleges should normally take you on, email or call them to confirm though. I'm pretty sure Birmingham Met College for instance take A-level students of all ages.

    Hi Jack, from what you've said I have many friends like you! Some go to a college but they pay about £5000 as they are over 18 and the government won't fund them.
    The Advanced Learner Loan covers your course costs (which are usually around £300 per year per A-level), and you don't have to repay until you're earning over £21k. Much like a normal student loan really.
