Description

Reporting the findings of a series of in-depth studies based on diverse groups of students, including early school-leavers, men, Maori, teachers, nurses, midcareer students, and retirees, this book examines these students' patterns of study, their employment status, their motivations, and the decisions they make. It examines how they experience university, how they see their futures, and how educational institutions might better plan, promote, process, and deliver courses to this growing group of older students.
