Default Career advice for mid-career changer

Hi all,

I am a 31 year old guy, with a Bsc in Life Sciences. Recently left a biomedical research job after five years. Since there are no prospects without a PhD in the research field, hence I left (no intention to take one either). I am in my final year of a PT accounting degree with UOL (Uni. of London). Hope to enter the accounting field after getting the UOL degree.
My questions are:
1. Am I too old to start a new career?
2. Do the accounting industry except old entry-level people like myself?
3. Besides ACCA, what other relevant courses would be useful for me?

Thank you.
