Continuing Education for Senior Citizens: Education enlivens – at any age
Many senior citizens discover life anew when they come to the campus following phases of bringing up a family or at the end of their professional careers. The University of Bremen offers plenty of opportunities to satisfy their thirst for knowledge by enabling them to participate in lecture classes and other academic activities as senior guest auditors. For this group, motivations based on academic performance or the application of theoretical knowledge take second place to healthy curiosity and personal inclination. Here, senior citizens can broaden their horizons concerning matters they always wanted to know more about – or even topics they never heard of before. This way they also have the chance to meet other people who share similar interests. By the way: The program is also open to people without university entrance qualifications (Abitur) who are venturing onto the campus for the first time.
