Students are young, but not all of them

The ones who decide to proceed with a higher education do that pretty soon after graduating from secondary school. For a long time, it has been a goal from the government to get the student to proceed to a higher education sooner after graduating from their secondary education and consequently getting an employment faster. This also shows in the average age which has slowly been going down. Today, the biggest group is between 20-23. The most common age for a student in a higher education with a Mecenat card is 22 years old. Then there are the occasional individuals who has taken to heart the process of lifelong learning. The oldest student with a Mecenat card is 89 years old.
