A Levels For The (ahem) Older Person
« on: August 12, 2019, 04:58:09 pm »
Have recently joined the ranks of the retired ( :thumbsup: ) and looking to study for an English Literature A Level for fun and to keep my mind active.

Taught courses seem prohibitively expensive so looking at online options. An afternoon’s googling suggests that the National Extension College is my best bet, but would very much like to hear any thoughts and recommendations.

Free massive online courses (MOOCs) are available for all sorts of subjects from well known unis. Ed ex is an example of available courses although there are lots of others.

You could build something around an A level syllabus for a given examining body perhaps. Timing for availability will be an issue although there seems to be lots of self paced modules as well.
