The pleasure of knowledge, the craving for learning, the need for interacting or recycling oneself professionally, a postponed desire… All of them are powerful reasons that push many people who have surpassed the 50 years old to come back to university or to enroll for the first time. In Spain there are currently more than 41.000 senior students in the different courses that the universities for older adults offer, taken in under the umbrella of the public ones, and also of some private ones, distributed around all the national territory.
