5 points to remember about returning to study

By – DeskDemon.com
  1. Universities and colleges offer full and part-time courses, long-distance and on-line learning. Many courses are held in the evening, or in some cases at the weekend, to cater for those of you who are working during the day.
  2. You don't have to study a full length degree course: you can top up on one skill by studying one unit, or an element of a course. You can also take a course for the fun of it.
  3. Many mature students go on to university or college to study, so you won't be in a class of 18 year olds. A mature student is deemed to be over the age of 21.
  4. Most universities and colleges have adult education advisers who can help you choose the right course for you. Check their web site or prospectus and have a rummage round to find out what sort of support they offer you if you're considering a return to study, either on a full or part time basis.
  5. Many universities and colleges offer a range of courses leading to professional qualifications which boost your employability and show you?re serious about your future.
