Good morning fellow surfers. Do we have any mature people over 50 doing or thinking about a university degree? I never had a degree lots of areas of interest thinking of returning to learning and doing a degree as a full or part-time student.
I am aware of the student funding and know that I probably won’t be working for 40 yrs to pay it back but still interested.
Any of my fellow surfers currently doing a degree what are your experiences?
If you graduated before 1980 from Froebel, in Roehampton, and were awarded a Certificate in Education they are trying to contact you. On May 15th the University is hosting a Honorary Degree Ceremony to which we are invited to receive an Honorary Degree. For further details please contact- Gilly King - 0208 392 3514.

Hello, I am 46 years old. Mother of a beautiful 16 year old girl. As I see her growing up and being so happy and doing so well, I don't want to interfere on that by no means. But at the same time, I believe I am still young and I could use my time to study an MBA, learn how to improve my business and maybe meet new friends. Has anyone gone through the same thoughts or experience?
Any other OU students out there? I know it is now quite expensive in England but sure there must be some of you out there. I have been an OU student since 1999 and still have lots of modules I would like to study.. What are you studying and are you enjoying keeping your brain active?!
If you could have your time again, and in this current unstable climate with the rising cost of University fees, would you advise a teenager to go to University or to gain three years experience in the workplace?? Many students are now graduating and finding it tough to get a credible first job.
Beginning to wonder about the ‘value’ of the first year at University? Seems to be too much drinking and not enough work being done. With the new increased fees this academic year, what are your thoughts on this issue?
