The Easy On Me singer, 34, didn't go to university as her music career had taken off.
But according to The Sun she has now said she fancies studying English literature at some point.
Adele apparently opened up during a fan Q&A in LA, saying: "After Vegas I really want to get a degree in English literature.
"If I hadn’t made it in my singing, I think I would definitely be a teacher. I think I’d be an English lit teacher."
The singer-songwriter said she feels as if she uses her "passion" for literature in what she does.
"But even though it’s not like I’d go on to get a job from my degree, I wish I had gone to university, I wish I’d had that experience," she added.
The Rolling In The Deep star said she wouldn't actually go to uni now but that she would study online with the help of a tutor.
"That’s my plan for 2025," she told fans.
Adele opened up about her love of the subject last year when her old English teacher made a surprise appearance at her An Audience With Adele performance at the London Palladium.
The star was asked if there had been someone who had inspired her when she was younger, and she replied that there was, naming her old English teacher Miss McDonald.
"It was just one year, but she got me really into literature," she said.
It was then revealed that Miss McDonald was in the audience, and Adele burst into tears as they were reunited.
