Thanks for the reply
Yes i don't want to do it in a casual manner because i plan to stay in Asia for a long time, i don't want to be looking over my back constantly.
Thankyou for clearing up my confusion regarding whether a specific degree was needed. That has really eased my mind because i believe i can obtain a degree in something i have an interest in, however something like the English or Maths i probably would not have a chance completing.
I will have a look at what degree options i have but first before i start all of that i need to complete 1 year Access to HE course. It's a shame i can't go straight into Uni but i don't have any A Levels nor work experience (which is usually considered being a mature student)
I could do a 1 year access course in Photography and Film and build up a portfolio and then maybe look at applying for a Uni spot.
Other things that also interest me are nutrition and obviously im quite fascinated by South East Asia on a whole. Its always been my dream to learn another language but i guess its probably best to pick something not too hard just so i can get my degree.
I won't do anything drastic which means i probably won't be applying this september, i guess its good to just work for another year, save some more money and really think it over. Im just too scared to take the plunge and quit my job next month, its all a bit too sudden and would hate to not think about this carefully.
It sucks being 25 (nearly 26) and only realising all this now, i have to start right from the bottom and have a really long (but hopefully rewarding) journey ahead of me
