Nick Cannon has enrolled in university.

The 'America's Got Talent' host is heading back to education by enrolling at Howard University in Washington D.C.

In a post on Instagram, he wrote: "YOU KNOW!!!!! #HU2020 My First Day as a Freshman!!! Howard University Class of 2020 (sic)"

The 35-year-old television personality posted a series of inspirational quotes on his Instagram account where he admitted he was looking forward to "getting mindful".

He captioned the various pictures: "Turning these Airplanes into School Buses! #FirstDayWave #BeNcredible ... Money Power Respect... Education Over Everything!! #EOE #Ncredible ...

"Been getting Money now its time to get Mindful!! ... All About the Benjamins!! Education Over Everything! #Ncredible #EOE ... Im ready!!! (sic)"

Meanwhile, Nick - who has five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with his former wife Mariah Carey - previously revealed he wants to teach his daughter that self-confidence is the most attractive thing.

He shared: "[I want to teach her that being attractive] is just about self-esteem. It's about understanding who you are and your own culture."

And despite his divorce from Mariah, Nick always puts his children first and isn't quite ready to date yet.

He shared: "There's nothing to tell ... me and Mariah get along great, and it's a process, nobody is holding nothing up. Why would I hold it up? I want her to be happy. She is such a beautiful spirit, and we put the kids first ...

"I haven't figured it out yet. I just don't think I'm ready to date yet. It's funny because my next film that I'm writing is all about online dating so I'm learning all about it. It's so intriguing to me but I have yet jump into that pool. But it's the new wave so I'm not against it."
