I'm thinking of applying to Kings College for Neuropsychology. :eek: I've just started an access course in Health and Health Sciences.
I'm incredibly mature age-wise, not so much mentally.

hello hello! I am applying to law to a bunch of schools (won't try to jinx them), but I am currently finishing up my BA in the US, so I'll be an international and mature student!

Hi! I'm applying to study English Lit, and am currently self studying that at A level, but going to swap to an Access to Humanities course at a local FE college instead. Nervously excited!
I'm planning to apply to York, Kent, Southampton, Surrey and Winchester.

Hi everyone.

I am applying for graduate entry LLBs as well. To the date, I have only decided on QMUL's course.
I have two master's degrees from my older times in unrelated fields, Biology and Anthropology. However have spend a long good time with kids after that at home, so time to start fresh! I am international too.

I'm 51, currently studying Access to HE humanities.

Hoping to study philosophy and English starting 2021, if I achieve good enough grades, at a Russell Group uni.

I feel younger now than when I was young.

And wiser.

Offer from Keele for Philosophy and English lit and for English Literature

Offer from University of Birmingham for English

Hi, I'm 44 and currently doing Access to science. I'm applying to all London unis as I need to live at home so will be commuting. I want to study nutrition and I'm interested in KCL, but worried about achieving the distinctions needed. Also looking at London Met and Westminster.

I'm applying for Speech and Language therapy - back to undergrad again! I really want to go back to my undergrad uni, Newcastle, and I've also applied to Essex, UEA, Strathclyde and Sheffield.

I'm currently working. I've got two previous degrees, unrelated to SALT lol.

Hovewer I see that many people do access to science..I am confused do we need to do this to? I am going just apply with my transcript. Would be happy if somebody can tell more about accesss to science.
