Itís never too late to learn - as thousands of mature students have discovered after returning to education - and next week the University of Lincolnshire of Humberside is offering prospective learners a chance to have a taste of whatís on offer.


Part of the national Adult Learners Week initiative, the university-wide events are aimed at attracting older people back into education who may have missed out first time round or who want to improve on their current qualifications.


Taster sessions at the Lincoln campus are:

      An Introduction to Law, Saturday 20th May, 3pm.

      Mastering the Internet, Monday 22nd May, 6pm - 7.30pm.

      E-Commerce and Information Systems, Tuesday 23rd May, 6pm - 7.30pm.


In higher education a mature student is anyone over the age of 21, and would-be returners can speak to staff in the Marketing Department to find out how the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside can help them.


Advice on course fees, bursaries and the hardship fund will also be available from university staff as part of the taster sessions.


To register your interest please contact the Marketing Department on 01522 882000.
