Why is there different support for Mature Students versus Undergraduate Students?
The Students' Union recognises that the needs of a ‘typical’ undergraduate student (aged 18-22) and those who are undertaking their studies later on in life are quite different. We understand that many mature students may have a lot to consider before deciding to return to university and may find it challenging to adjust to university life. Mature students may also look for different types of activities, social events or support from our 'typical' undergrad.
For that reason, we have created a dedicated mature and PG student landing page with all the current associations, clubs, spaces and support links which we feel to be most relevant to this broad cohort. If you feel there is something missing on this page, please feel free to get in touch.
