Learning IT

THE NUMBER of senior students interested in learning IT and English has grown in Portugal for the last five years.

This prompted the launch of a Senior Virtual University on Tuesday in Lisbon.

The project is part of a wider programme, RUTIS a senior’s universities network which already has 85 facilities spread through the country, and is aimed at older people who want to keep on learning after retirement.

The Virtual University aims to respond to United Nations recommendations against ageing and loneliness. Please visit: www.rutis.org/ingles.htm
