Is it time for a career change?
If you’re bored with your job and you feel like you are no longer learning, signing up for a course to prompt a career change or second job could be an option for you. You may feel like you are ‘too old’ for accountancy, and if that’s the case you are not alone, because research carried out this year found that although 31% of people consider changing job a few times a month, employees “are most likely to consider themselves ‘trapped’ at work at the age of 36”. However, this view does not mean that people can’t apply to retrain and find a different vocation, such as moving into business and finance:
“Many people incorrectly believe that they have to stick with their career despite being a reasonably young age.” Suzie Webb, spokesperson for the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), told The Daily Telegraph earlier this year.
Studying business and finance as a mature student
Whether you are looking to study at college in London for the first time, or make a significant change in your life as a mature student, our courses in business, accounting and finance could be the beginning of the refreshing career change you are searching for. It’s all about unleashing your full potential and you’ll be able to access careers advice and guidance from our admissions team, to help you choose the right course for you, as you embark on exploring a new path.
As well as the learning and career opportunities, being a mature student can be a chance to meet new people in a different environment. And you certainly won’t be alone – popular online resource The Student Room even has its own pages, resources and discussion boards for mature students.
At Mont Rose College, we teach accountancy at HND and BSc levels, and what’s great about accountancy as a career is it can allow a lot of flexibility – opening up doors to a variety of different roles within the field – and it can be a suitable career for home workers too.
We prioritise making our education both accessible and affordable, and there are a variety of different funding options available to new students.
