Mature Students

There is no typical ‘mature student’ although the official definition (UCAS) is ’21 or over’. Studying at university as a mature student can sometimes seem more like following crazy paving than a straight path but there is plenty of support here at Marjon if you need it.

Some top tips to help you out:

  • Look out for our ‘return to learn’ drop-ins during Welcome Week – free refreshments!
  • Check out whether the Student Union has a Mature Students Officer to represent your interests – if they don’t why not put yourself forward?
  • Join the Mature Students Society if there is one or if not, group together and start one – see the Clubs and Societies page for more information
  • Make sure you are getting all the funding you’re entitled to – go to a Student Funding drop-in.
  • Talk to your Personal Development Tutor – they are there to help you and there is no such thing as a silly question
  • Check out the Study Skills section of this website for useful information to help you with your studies
  • Need a refresher in IT @ Marjon, systems or software? Marjon IT Training & Support is there to help you and you can book in for a 1:1 session on topics of your choice or even a course
  • Student Support has a wide range of services to help you through any tricky times and make the most of your opportunities. Services include:
