I have been thinking this for a while, Go back 10 years ago and as long as you had life experience you could go back to university.
It is not a decision people take lightly once you are past a certain age. I can tell you that for free I have a mortgage and 2 children to support so losing my income will be a big thing for our family so I know my heart is 100% in this, I was never great at exams however I work my heart and soul into what ever job I have ever done, I know my subject area and I execute it well.
However how am I suppose to get this across to a university administration board?
I am self-employed so having to lose an entire days wage to go for my 30minute interview, I have thought long and hard about taking this path and I do feel that if it doesn’t happen this academic year than financially is out of my league forever.
I cannot afford to give up work and attend a HE access course as there is no funding for this and my 2 local colleges the course is days not evenings otherwise I would take that route first.
I have researched this I know that I am more than ready to take the next step into HE, however how do I get this across to them.
