    I've had two interviews so far and wasn't treated any different than the non-mature students. Each university interviews differently so you'd need to look at the threads relevent to the uni you are being interviewed at.

    I've been interviewed by Brighton and UEA. Got a conditional offer from UEA.

    Are you at college or already got your qualifications?

    One of my mature pharmacy course mates got in with a microbiology degree.

    yeh ive had interviews. and i work in pharmacy so the questions were based around that rather than academics, so i guess they talk about what youve been doing with your life since not straight from college! advice would be to seem really enthusiastic and interested in the role and make sure you know everything the job would involve!
