Open university? Not sure how much that costs. I guess you could do a full-time undergrad course if you wanted but maybe it's not an option to you?

You can of course get a few macro/micro economic books and do some personal reading to learn a bit.

i do alot of self learning in economics but i want to step it up a gear. open uni is not really what im looking for..

problem with doing a full time undergrad course is i dont have the grades to get in due to not giving a flying **** and mucking about in school...was like 10years ago!

call up unis and ask...i believe the admission process is different for mature students.

I know you said Open Uni type stuff wasn't what you were looking for but thought i'd post it any way:

Distance learning with the University of London: flexible study options

The other thing you can do, assuming you don't want a piece of paper at the end of it, is just pop along to the lectures at your local uni and hope no one notices...

Part time (evening, 4 years) undergraduate course. Your current qualifications are more then enough for entry.

Same ****** up at school and college but got into a s**t uni now Iím doing both uni and A- levels as a private candidate , economics, maths ! Teaching myself and then i will pay (£25) to sit the exams at some college near me! A-levels are quite easy if you put in the time.
