Support for mature students
Find out more about the support we offer to help you return to learning.
If you’re thinking of starting university after a break from formal education, we offer specific support for you.
A significant proportion of our students are 21 or older when they join us 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, join our Mature Applicant Evening on Wednesday 18 May 2022 from 6.00pm to 8.00pm.
The event will take place in our Students' Union and will include a free drinks reception and canapes. You will be able to tour our campus, chat to support teams from across the University and learn more about the services we offer to mature students. You can also meet and network with fellow mature applicants and students. Timings for the event are:
|6.00pm||Arrival and registration with welcome drinks|
|6.30pm||Presentation from support teams: Mature Students at York St John|
|7.00pm||Canapes and networking with optional campus tours|
Bookings for this event have now closed.
Mature entry offer scheme
Our mature student entry scheme recognises non-traditional entry qualifications and experience and 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 equivalent this scheme could work for you.
Apply online or contact us to talk about your options.
