Support for mature students
Find out more about the support we offer to help you return to learning.
If you are starting university after a break from formal education, we offer tailored support for you.
Students returning to study after being out of education for 3 years or more are classed as mature students. Mature students are often over 21 when they begin their undergraduate degree.
Many of our students are mature students, and we have an outstanding record of supporting those students to achieve academic success.
Mature student events
If you are over 21 and have applied for a place at York St John, you will be invited to join one of our mature student events.
These events take place on campus. They are a great chance to meet and network with fellow mature applicants and students. You can tour our campus, chat to support teams from across the University and learn more about the services we offer to mature students.
Future events and booking details will be shared on this page soon.
Mature entry offer scheme
Our mature student entry scheme takes into account non-traditional qualifications and experience. It enables us to welcome people with a passion for learning and a real determination to succeed.
If you have you been out of education for at least 3 years but hold a GCSE English Language at Grade C or an equivalent, this scheme could work for you.
Apply online or contact us to talk about your options. Learn more on our mature entry offer scheme page.
