The Changing Patterns of University Studies: Towards Lifelong Learning in Finnish Universities.
Journal of the Programme on Institutional Management in Higher Education, v12 n3 p113-27 2000
Statistics on university students in Finland, where one-third of students are 30 or older, reveal changing patterns in students' course of study. Prolonged studies, returning to studies, starting studies as an adult, or studying for a second degree indicate a trend toward lifelong learning. Changes in the age structure and study patterns of students raise issues for universities. (EV)
