Pursue an interest

While many people study with us to improve their current career, or transform their career entirely, others choose to study with us to pursue an interest and for the sheer joy of learning.

Francophile Jane Radvan always wanted to do a French degree but a young family, travelling the world with her husband’s work (he’s a US-based executive) and being an Olympic swimmer all got in the way. After a false start at a bricks and mortar university she finally gained an Open University degree, graduating in Versailles. Read Jane’s story.

And learn how Trevor Waddington OBE set himself the challenge of studying the arts, after a successful career in the Royal Navy.
