Today’s frequently asked question that we’ll be answering is “Am I too old to study?”
The answer to this question is very simply and I’m very pleased to tell you that you are never EVER EVER too old to study.
In fact mature age students are usually considered better learners particularly because they are making the decision to study later in life, whether it be for a job promotion, career change or even just leisure as opposed to most young people who study because they feel pressured to choose a career pathway really early in life.
Not only that but usually as people get older their time management skills improve as well. you’re used to working a full time job to pay your bills on time, you may have children that need attention as well as a house to keep clean. There is no doubt in the world time management gets better with age…. and you were worried that you were too old to study.
Another really cool thing to know is technology is making life easier and easier. A lot of study nowadays is carried out online with simplistic online learning systems that can be used by just about anyone. Online learning is also very flexible so it doesn’t matter what your schedule looks like, you can always find time for study.
Also studying online means you don’t have have to step foot in a classroom to gain a qualification anymore. That may seem a little antisocial, BUT it’s perfect for those people who have a full time job or children and don’t have a lot time 9 to 5 time for study. At home study is also great for focusing on what you need to get done and create a routine habit that works really well.
A lot of mature age people have doubts about technology but a large percentage of people change their mind when they see how easy online learning can be. For crying out loud one of the oldest people to undertake online learning in Australia is 94 years old!!!
If they can do it you can do it.
