Students with experience of life beyond the school years have much to offer the campus community and we warmly welcome them.
Anyone beginning an undergraduate programme who is aged 21 or over is classified as a mature student. At Surrey about 27 per cent of our students fall within this classification. Combined with the many postgraduate students at the University, mature students form a high proportion of the campus population and we aim to offer them every support.
Although they are treated no differently to younger students, there are some common concerns shared by mature students that can make their educational experience different. For many mature students – especially those who haven’t studied recently and who are juggling other commitments – there are particular challenges to face.
We have strong support networks to help each student cope with the demands of their degree programme, achieve their potential and enjoy their time with us.
