Getting into Education as a Mature Student
Becoming a mature student can be rewarding – and a place at university or college could be closer than you think. Work experience and Access courses offer alternative ways into higher education, and there are lots of options to help you fit learning in with other commitments.
Why get into Education as a Mature Student?
University isn’t just for 18 year-olds: 60 per cent of undergraduates in the UK are over 21. People make the decision to get into higher education at all times of life and for all sorts of reasons. For some, it’s a long-held personal ambition – perhaps one they have more time to achieve when they’re older. For others, higher education is a way of opening up new career options.
