There's never an age too old for school, as some people have proven to the younger generation who for one or several reasons missed the chance to make it to tertiary.

When you're a celebrity juggling a schedule filled with filming, travelling, interviews and other celebrity duties, it can be difficult to think about anything other than your career.

In the case of some celebrities, getting an education is too big of an opportunity to pass up, even with their tedious work life.

Some focused icons chose to enrol in higher education during certain stages of their career.
