It’s never too late to study for a degree

It’s never too late to study for a degree

Have bold dreams
A life-changing learning journey at GSM London starts with a single step – and this inspiring video about the power of education just might convince you to take it.

 

 

You don’t have to be fresh out of school or college to study for a degree. At GSM London we actively encourage older students to join our degree programmes because we know just how much their knowledge and experience adds to the learning environment.

You’ll fit right in
Walk into any lecture or tutorial at GSM London and you’ll see people of all ages and backgrounds, with a huge range of different stories to tell. It’s this diversity that makes GSM London such a rich and rewarding place to study — and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

So if you’re worried that you won’t fit in at university because you’re older or have more life experience than the other students, don’t be.

We’ll help bring you up to speed
Returning to education after years away can be a daunting prospect. Whether you’ve been busy building a career, running a business, or raising a family, we understand that your study skills may be a little rusty.

That’s why we offer a range of options to help ease you back into learning, including our extended degree programmes with Foundation Year, our Flying Start programme, and our 13-week refresher course — English for University — aimed at students for whom English is a second language.

You’ll also be assigned a personal tutor who will give you academic guidance and support throughout your time here at GSM London.
