8 reasons to learn something new in the New Year
With the New Year approaching, many of us will be thinking of ways to improve ourselves in 2018. Learning something new can open a number of doors, so why not make it your resolution to do just that?
Here are 8 reasons to learn something new at Wrexham Glyndwr University.
1. Boost your job prospects
Learning something new can help you improve your career prospects. Choosing a course that is linked to the career you want shows that you can use initiative, are willing to learn and most importantly have the skills needed for the job you want.
2. Learn a skill
If you’re looking to try something that you’ve always been interested in but never had the chance to go out and do, one of our evening classes could be for you. (And we’re quite proud of the variety of courses we offer!) Students can walk away knowing how to make jewellery, use IT programmes or even record a crime scene!
3. Make new friends
You gain more than knowledge when you enrol on a course. You’ll find yourself surrounded by like-minded people as well as people from different backgrounds and experiences who are all interested in the same thing as you - It’s a great opportunity to make some new friends.
4. Find a new hobby
We have a range of short courses starting in January 2018 (and throughout the year) Even if you have no experience, just give it a go! You might find it’s something you really enjoy doing and want to continue with.
5. Gain a qualification
Whether it’s a short course, degree or PhD, gaining a qualification can be a life changing step. If you’re not sure which level is right for you, get in touch with our enquires team who’ll be happy to help.
6. Improve yourself
Perhaps you finished your degree a few years ago and now it’s time to continue to Postgraduate level? Maybe you have a diploma and are ready to go for your degree. If you’ve been thinking about taking the next step, take a look at our courses for 2018.
7. You’ll be supported
Here at Glyndwr we offer lots of support to all of our students during their studies and beyond. So whether you’re coming back to education after many years, or are trying something completely new, we are here to support you with everything from Dyslexia support to careers advice and study skills.
8. Find your calling
What starts as a one off or a potential hobby could turn into a thriving career or business. Life is what you make it after all - You never know until you try!
