Mature and part-time students

Starting at University is an exciting time with lots of changes to get used to. The Mature Students’ and Peer Support Adviser and the team of Mature Student Advocates are here to help you settle in and make the best possible start in your studies. During your course, you will also have a personal tutor from your subject area who is there to help you with both academic and other aspects of student life. You can also request a current mature student as your peer mentor.

The Mature Student Network is a group run by students, for students. Its main focus is to provide social activities for all mature students. They will be running several events throughout the year. The Network is an excellent way to meet other mature students. If you would like further information about the network or their events, you can email
