Adult Learners’ Week runs 12-18 May 2012 and the Institute of Lifelong Learning at the University of Leicester is organising a series of drop-in information sessions at local libraries.

There is a wide range of adult learning opportunities available at the University of Leicester so if you’ve ever considered furthering your education, come along to one of the following venues where University staff will be happy to answer questions and provide advice.

Location  Date  Time
 Belgrave Library  Saturday 12 May  12.00pm-2.00pm
 Leicester Central Library  Monday 14 May  12.00pm-2.00pm
 Evington Library  Tuesday 15 May  10.00am-12.00pm
 Highfields Library  Wednesday 16 May  3.00pm-5.00pm

Although it's not essential, please register your interest so staff will have some idea how many people to expect on each day.

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.”
