Hi

After 3 years of teaching, working as a journalist and studying in Moldova and Estonia, I should be going to uni. But is 21 considered old by 18 years etc. What about girls, would a first year 21 old be "young" in the view of yougner girls in same year???
Deffo not too old!!! My mum is considering going to Uni and she's 44!!
I don't think you can ever be too old!!
Good luck with whatever you decide

I'm 21 and will be starting Uni in Sep. I feel more ready for Uni now then before and I'm more at ease with myself. I think going to Uni is a big decision and not everyone is ready for it at the same point of their lives. You'll be fine so don't worry!

In some of my classes, something like 80%+ of us were over the age of 21.
Think the oldest student I've come across is mid 50s.

I was 21 when I started. It didn't really make much different at all.
