Learning as an Older Adult

Ask a Question

I did a BA course in university and I see that the open university is doing free courses. seriously, if you fancy learning please DO go for it, it is very emotionally hard but satisfying and confidence boosting. I'm doing my MA now, who else is doing uni learning - oh and I'm 55 ;)

I agree with leaning as an older adult I do it a lot. Joking aside It is nice to hear somebody enjoying learning, great that it boosted your confidence. Free courses are always good value, shame tuition fees are so high for a degree.

I think it is very admirable of you both to be doing this at a later age

You are never too old to learn. In fact, I think in some ways it is better when you are older as you'd be more committed.

I just started uni as a student nurse, one of the 18 year olds said its nice that there are older more mature women on the course... I'm only 26, she made me feel 40😂

Most regular chat readers will know that I very much advocate learning throughout life. There is never any reason to stop as we take in various bits of info daily.

It is great to do academic learning but anyone can teach themselves, especially if they have a subject they love....mine being history.

I had to start a health and hygiene course for working in my daughters pub and I’m over 50. Seems easier and more interesting when your older and not forced to do it.
