So back in 2015 I went to college for a few months and in that time my mental health was very bad so I only managed to stay in college till December, because some major things happened which were due to my mental health and being in hospital etc, so now we are in 2020 and my mental health hasn't really got any better but because of this I haven't been able to go college or university. So hat I'm asking is it possible to go to University at this age as I have no a-levels and I don't even remember the grades I got in school tbh, but I really really want to be able go to University do a course and actually get something in my life but I don't know where to start.

Which subject would you want to study? Do you have a particular University in mind?

City of Bristol would be the one in mind, and the subject I would like to do is something around like mental health or health and social care.

I don’t think you’d be able to go straight to uni but you could definitely still get there! Look into foundation courses and applied courses that are A Level equivalents.

If you don't have the a-levels required, then you could look into doing an Access to Higher Education course at your local collage first and maybe get some work experience in the field too

Yes true - especially as their 'get togethers' are suspended at the moment.

I'd recommend an Access to HE course wherever you decide - good luck!
