Or should you be thinking of taking care of the grand kids,doing a bit of gardening and reading while in your rocking chair ?.Many people would say at this age you should be vacationing perhaps on a world cruise.Other may say fishing on a lake ? but what if you felt strong enough and felt this need to learnt something new. Should you be sitting down waiting for the inevitable or be doing as much as you can do? Should you be giving in to minor artrhitic pains or being as active as you can be ? Should you let others and societal norms dictate how you spend your last years . If you did decide to go to school at this age what would be the issues that you would consider ?.

I think a short course might be better than any thing you would take to long to finish. Only joking,I am not to sure it would suit me if I had not learn't it by that time I would not bother about it.They do say that if you keep your mind going you last longer.I would want to learn by travelling and seeing the world not sitting in a classroom somewhere.Each to thier own.

There is no age barrier for studies.. the more u study the more knowledgable u get.. its good to learn more.. i wouldnt mind learning new things.. but i hate the exams....
