'Lockdown Has A Lot To Answer For': The Mature Students Going Back To University
Friday 19 June 2020
From UK newspaper The Guardian:
'Lockdown has a lot to answer for': the mature students going back to university
Far from being a deterrent, coronavirus is inspiring those who thought they’d left education behind to start studying again
The pandemic has also made Nikky Cato, 41, consider going back to university. Cato has chronic fatigue syndrome and left university without a degree years ago, when she was denied reasonable adjustments. But as classes shift online, Cato feels universities have become more accessible and more willing to be flexible.
“Suddenly the pandemic hit and everyone’s like, look at us, we can do everything by Zoom,” she says. “I was half eye-rolling and half thinking there’s no point in being bitter when I can use the opportunity.” She’s now looking into part-time psychology degrees.
