Exam Study Expert Podcast - going back to college at 40

Uncover the story of a “student of life” who simply never gave up learning

Don’t settle for less than you can be. Never give up.

Today’s epic tale spans decades of our hero’s life, and has seen her overcome lack of money and grind in minimum-wage jobs, lack of time, family tragedy and her own mental health struggles. And she still headed back to college in her 40’s!

No matter what you’re facing – never say never!

NB: Please stay listening to the end of the episode – although our protagonist had some poor sleep habits earlier in her life, she later saw the error in her ways and now prioritises sleep, and, like us, is a big advocate of a healthy sleep routine!

And if you’re going back to college in your 40’s, or in later life, good luck from all of us at Exam Study Expert!
