Mature Learners are strongly represented
within our University community, with almost 40% of our
students being over 21.
However at York St John we are seeking to raise the
representation of mature students who are returning to
education who have not had previous experience of Higher
Education. (A mature student is anyone over 21 years of age and we
do not have an upper age limit for students to come to study).
Mature Learner Information Sessions
We are currently running Mature Learners Information
sessions, led by a member of the team from our Student
Recruitment Team and a mature student ambassador. This is also an
opportunity to meet other mature learners to discuss how they
have approached study later in life.
This is an opportunity for mature learners who are
considering Higher Education to find out more about university
life. During the session you will meet a current mature student,
have a campus tour and have your questions answered about attending
Your questions may include:
- What subjects can I study?
- How long would it take?
- Full-time or part-time study?
- What support can I have in order to study?
- Do I have the skills and qualifications to apply?
- What financial support can I get?
- How do I apply?
