I’m just wondering can you go to university with only a level 1 qualification from college from 11 years ago?

I don't know any way to go to uni with only level 1 qualifications.

Have a look into access courses at colleges.

You may need to do GCSEs (or equivalent) in maths and English first. Some colleges offer pre-access courses with GCSEs included, e.g. https://reading.activatelearning.ac....il/pre-access/

What do you want to study?

There's no age limit when it comes to university! It's for anyone, whether you're in your 20s or 40s

Your qualifications will need a bit of polishing up I believe though. From looking on the internet, I think you need to try and get it to a level 2 qualification (I think in Maths and English and hopefully someone can provide more on that).

I second this. Have a look at higher access courses, but you will need to get a level 2 qualification first

You can go to University at any age you like, but you do need some qualifications to gain entry onto your desired programme of study.
To check what your options are and what qualifications you need specifically, visit the 'Entry Requirement' section of your chosen course on any of your desired University's website.

What course are you wanting to study? Many universities offer access courses or courses that have a foundation year that can you bring you up to speed. It's just a case of doing your research and seeing what's available
