An eighty-year-old university student has successfully completed his master’s degree in arts at Islamic Azad University. Firooz Aghdamifar’s thesis appraisal session was held at the university’s Sciences & Research Branch on February 13 and the post-graduate student defended his dissertation on ‘the analysis of the translation of the first novel by French author Jean Daniel.’ “The main reason for me to continue studying despite my age was to get familiar with techniques and methods used by translators in advanced countries,” Aghdamifar said,  IRNA reported. “Instead of spending my time sitting on park benches during my retirement years, I decided to make the maximum use of my free time and realize my dream.” The eighty-year old student said that everybody should maintain his or her perseverance and remember that it is never too late to learn. “My next goal is to get a PhD.”
