In the accompanying press release I was quoted as
Denise Taylor an occupational psychologist and life coach said: “Going into higher education at a later stage in life has become extremely popular however some still struggle to make the jump. Due to the current downturn, many people are taking time to reassessing their future career paths and how having the right education will enhance their chances of meeting their goals. As a result, I tend to find mature students are often much clearer on why they want to study, and can get focused on their future career goals right away.”
“The thought of becoming a mature student can be scary for some but it needn’t be. It can be a very positive experience and will show future employers that those returning to education after working full time are willing to step outside their comfort zone. This new joint initiative from the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills and The Student Room will provide potential mature students with the means to find out more about their options, discuss their hopes and fears with others via the forum and gain practical reassurance on their future plans from a number of video case studies.”
“Higher Education is the key to a strong career path and should be a consideration no matter what life stage an individual is at.”
