I'm 24, and I too old to go back to college?

I only finished my first year, and left.

Would love to get back to study, but wouldn't want to be an 'old fogey'

Any info would be appreciated

    Jesus, noooooooooo.

    You're never too old.

    My Dad went to uni at 40something to become a social worker - 17 years on and he loves his job to bits, still. :)

    No. There are many people who go to college/uni at that age. I think my mum went to college in her mid to late thirties.

    So yeah, I don't think that it's a problem/issue. It may seem weird though.

    Nobody is too old to go back to study. Do you want to just go to college or were you hoping to get qualifications for uni?

    If it's the latter have a look at access courses, i'm taking one up full time hopefully in Sept. It's a year long if your full time (depends on what you decide to do) and it's accepted by most universities. It's aimed at adults so you'll probably find people your own age or older on the courses.
