  • Категория: News

Retired Americans are manifesting a growing interest in learning. Some opt for classes while others choose fundamental tuition and relocation to college campuses. Numerous lifelong programmes for the retirees backed the demand.

For example, the Institute for Retired Professionals originated from the New School in NYC and was the pioneer of the lifelong learning. Today the annual fee for courses is little over $1000. If one does not fit for a scholarship or has modest savings, then he or she can consider working again. Some known retailers and chain stores in the USA offer tuition packages for the employees.

Another example, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes offer a membership for $60 a year. Over 100 programmes offer classes from $50 but a scholarship is also an option. Elderly people can blow up some stereotypes. Retired individuals are interested in day trips, contemporary art and performance, gender policy, agriculture, nuclear weapons, and many other topics.

Arizona State University sales apartments for the elderly students. Thus, retired individuals will get access to all amenities, including cafes, pool, theater etc. Monthly rent fee including courses, full board, and cleaning services ranges $4000-5500, the purchase of an apartment varies from almost $400,000 to $800,000. It is worth mentioning that in case of death, the university will keep only 15% of the property cost and return the rest to the heirs. No wonder that only 10%of the suites have been left unsold.

The number of the lifelong learners in the USA and worldwide is constantly increasing. Lonely retirees acknowledge the possibility to widen their social circle, engage in community activities. Whatever are the reasons, today there is a budget way to learn new information as well as to embrace a new purpose in retirement.
