A 90-year-old woman who received her Masters of Ageing degree says it's never too late to study.

Lorna Prendergast, a 90-year-old from Australia, received her Masters of Ageing degree at the University of Melbourne’s graduation ceremony.

ABC News says that it is not every day a 90-year-old receives a master's degree — and it is even less common for them to complete the whole course online.

Hailing from the country town of Bairnsdale — almost 300 kilometres east of Melbourne — Mrs Prendergast hopes that by speaking about her experience of returning to study, others will realise you are never too old to learn, according to ABC News.
