Mature Learners Student Support

The University believes that mature students make an important contribution to University life through their range of experience and non-traditional qualifications.

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 have not 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.

During Welcome Week 2017 a successful Mature Learners Cafe was held on Friday 29th September, 10-12 in the Lower Concourse, Lecture Theatre.
