Deciding what to Study
If you are trying to figure out what to study, this section will help you explore your options.
Going back to study as an adult can be daunting, particularly if you had a negative experience of formal education. The good news is that, as an adult learner, you decide what education and training options best suit you. Adult learning options are wide and varied and they are designed to be enjoyable, relevant to your interests, flexible and to fit in with work and family life.
Consider whether you want your course to lead to a recognised award or not. Many adults simply want to learn about an area that interests them, and are not concerned with qualifications. If you want to participate in formal education, through an educational institution, then you need to figure out which level is suitable for you.
