This chapter discusses that part of late-life learning that takes place in formal and third age learning avenues. Formal learning, as we have already pointed out, refers to learning activities taking place within the institutionalised, chronologically graded and hierarchical educational systems that range from universities, community colleges to other environments with clear hierarchical structure. Thirdage learning is part of the non-formal sector of learning - that is, organised systematic activities carried on outside the formal system to provide selected types of learning to particular sub-groups of the population (Findsen, 2005).
