The Senior Studies Institute provides opportunities for people over 50 to use their learning and life skills in a range of socially valuable contexts - as family members, active citizens and volunteers. This includes developing learning opportunities in areas not traditionally viewed as the domain of adult education.
Many students at the Senior Studies Institute enjoy gifting their time and experience in voluntary activities. Within the Institute you can find:
Ambassadors for Strathclyde University's historic buildings, the Barony and the Ramshorn, as well as Campus tours.
Fear Free IT
One-to-One introduction of older people to computers.
The Tuesday Club
University administration volunteer help.
