Dr Clive Marsh, Director of Learning and Teaching at the Institute of Lifelong Learning, said, “Taking a university course as an adult learner, with a few years’ life or work experience behind you, means you get an especially rich learning experience. You bring fresh questions to your study and want to get as much as possible from it.
“Adult learners tend to squeeze the most out of the hours available. And whatever you explore – whether it’s a humanities, arts, psychology, management or counselling course – you learn skills, and develop as a person, in ways that employers find really attractive.”
