I am 22 years old, work full time but would eventually like a change in career - preferably law. Think its a good idea to start at A level Law, but cannot decide between home study or local college!?

-Local college charge £700 for an evening course, over 1 year

-Home study is £300 and might finish it in less than a year as long as I stay motivated & commuited

-Local college may give opportunity to socialise, but will need to pay more expense to park car for 2 hours a week in centre of town

I do not know anyone that has done a home study course so I don't know if they are worthwhile!? Please help!!!! All help gratefully welcome Thanks!!

I'd go to the college. It's more money, and yes you'd need to pay more for parking, but you'll be able to socialise, ask questions as they come up - and get an instant answer! - and I think it would just be better than doing it at home. Doing it at home is all well and good, but you've also got the chance that it might take you longer than you expected, or you get bored because you're just sitting at home doing it by yourself!

It can easily be self taught. Don't assume its the easiest of A-Levels. I found Government & Politics more challenging.

Not difficult though

Buy a textbook and learn

Do you have any other A-Levels? You do not need an A-Level in Law to study Law at University and then become a solicitor/barrister. All Universities I looked at before attending one didn't ask for Law at A-Level. I did others and had no problem with getting into University. So if you have other A-Levels then try applying to Universities. There are some Universities who even accept people without many qualifications and take your current job now into consideration. Worth a go
