Learning by MOOCs in your retirement

I am 64 years old. I have not been lucky during my studies because i finished my secondary school in 1975 and not had access to university due to lack of scholarship . I resumed my studies after 20 years and as of 1995 i began university . Now i have earned a bachelor's degree of public administration.

It is not possible for me to pursue a master or a PhD in my retirement though it was my passion.

Do not worry! If you have a great passion of studies, you can continue learning during you retirement because you can earn a lot of certificates by free or affordable MOOCs (Massive Open Online courses).

Now i am planning to earn a diploma of 2 year philosophy and 2 year theology MOOC for francophone at "Institut Docteur Angelique" in Belgium.

MOOCs rock!

Congratulations on your educational attainments! It's never too late to learn something new. My plans for retirement include language study, something I've enjoyed in the past. I hope to get a decent level of functioning in Russian, Spanish, and maybe I'll try Mandarin too. Woot!
