What is a mature student?
A mature student is anyone who is over 21 when they start their course. Over 60% of our undergraduate students studying full and part-time courses are mature students.
As a mature student, you may be worried about whether you have the right qualifications, how you will juggle studying with work, family and other commitments, and how you will manage financially.
Don’t worry, you are not alone! Each year, thousands of people are considering taking the same steps as you to pursue new opportunities and start their journey into higher education. Our staff will be there to support you every step of the way.
