It seems its never too late to go back to school and learn something new, this 91 year old senior proves that. I guess its better than lazying around watching countdown and drinking tea.
Bertie Gladwin has just completed his masters degree in Intelligence History and now plans to do a PHD. Bertie didn’t want to do home learning so he joined twenty-something students in the busy corridors and classrooms.
This story amazed me, even more so because I’ve recently written two articles about whether its even worth going to university, clearly Bertie thinks it is! Going back to school is certainly an interesting retirement choice. Although is certainly keeps the mind active, I wonder what the other students must have thought and Bertie when they first saw him.
Funnily enough what they were studying in the Classroom the senior student had actually lived through it himself. That must have certainly helped him with his studies. I wonder if he went drinking with the other students?
Would you consider coming out of retirement to go back to school? Never say never but I don't think I will ever return to education never mind in my golden years.
Here is the link to the original article, plus my article: is it worth going to university? And, Life After School?
