Students over 60 complete first year at university for the elderly in Turkey’s Antalya

Some 387 students who are over the age of 60 have completed their first year at a course dubbed “refreshment program” at Akdeniz University in the Mediterranean province of Antalya.

The gerontology department of the university started a project for people who are over 60, most of whom retired a year ago, teaching them medicine and law. They also educate them on house work and knitting.  

Lessons are held three days a week with classes beginning in the evening at 5:00 p.m. Lessons go on for approximately 2.5 hours a day. The program also offers overaged students ID cards like other ordinary university students, giving them the opportunity to access university facilities like the library.
