Returning to education as an adult learner has many advantages. Compared to those fresh out of high school you have better defined career goals combined with more life skills and greater real-world experience. Despite this, some adult learners are put off returning to education because of certain pervasive myths. In this article we will be exploring those myths and comparing them to the reality of returning to school.
Balancing your personal and professional life with the demands of education can be difficult, but it is not impossible. At Northwest we offer flexible courses to suit your busy Las Vegas timetables. Our courses are available both full and part-time with the option for both online and on-campus learning. If you are considering returning to education then call us at (702) 403-1592 to speak with one of our enrollment advisors about the timetable options available to you.
Most schools offer orientation classes designed to bring you up to speed on the equipment and software you will need to use on your course. Even those classes taught online make use of user friendly interfaces designed to be approachable for those without significant computer skills. That being said, computer skills are a ubiquitous part of many modern careers, so while it might be stressful in the short term, using your return to education as a chance to improve your computer skills will benefit you in the long run.
In 2017, around 22% of people enrolled on full-time educational courses in the U.S. were over 30 years old. There is a large population of adult learners available for you to interact with and many schools have matures student clubs and organisations that you can join. Communicating with other adult learners is an excellent way to get tips on how to manage your student work and personal life and mature student organisations are an fantastic form of support for adult learners.
