The 76-year-old student completed his PhD after 50 years

It is said that there is no age to learn and there are many examples in the world where seekers of knowledge have devoted their entire lives to learning.
Now recently a British citizen has received his PhD degree at the age of 76.
According to the British news agency, 76-year-old Dr. Nick Axton, who is from Somerset, enrolled in a PhD in 1970 and took 50 years to complete his degree.
According to reports, in 1970, Dr. Nick received a scholarship to pursue a PhD in Mathematical Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh, USA, but after 5 years, he returned to the UK without completing his PhD.
Now, however, the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom awarded him a PhD in philosophy, in the presence of his wife and 11-year-old granddaughter.
Dr Axton hopes to be able to publish his previous research which he carried out in the US 50 years ago.
He said that the work I was doing at that time was quite difficult, I was trying to understand human behavior and working on it.
According to Dr Exton, when I resumed my studies at the University of Bristol, the students in my class were 23 years old, who gladly accepted me.
He did his MA from the University of Bristol in 2016 and then completed his PhD from there in 2022 at the age of 75, who has now also received his degree.
