According to the National Center for Education Statistics, adult learners are the fastest growing segment in the higher education market. After receiving a bachelors degree and working for several years, adults are returning to school to either skill up on new technologies and languages, or to restart their career in a different field. Accelerated learning programs (a.k.a. bootcamps) are an innovative way to quickly give people relevant skills - with a lower price tag than a traditional four-year degree.
Like any other life change, going back to school is often seen as a source of trepidation or fear. Imposter syndrome pops up, and older students see themselves as inferior or incapable of learning - contrary to the fact that nowadays, all post-college education is tailored to learners who are later in life.
