An increasing number of active people are reaching retirement age in good health and with plenty of plans and projects to undertake. Society must take advantage of their energy, talent and experience. 
Retirement-age individuals need to set specific goals and remain active, maintain and increase their personal networks and pursue new projects. It is a great time to go to university, a window of opportunity. 
To cater to these individuals, UIC Barcelona is launching an Experience Campus, which follows the methodology used by the universities with the most experience in this type of education. In other words, the teaching is based on academic rigor, individual attention, a variety of subjects that respond to a wide range of individual interests and a methodology that encourages participation and provides tools at a psychological and instrumental level that allow people to remain active throughout this new stage in life.  
In a predominantly young environment that breathes enthusiasm, the Experience Campus offers participants the chance to become part of the university community, research groups and get involved in all types of activities. 
This introductory session is therefore intended for anyone who is about to reach or has reached this age, as well as anyone else who might be interested, including heads of human resource departments, representatives from entities that work with senior citizens, family members, etc.
