    How are you funding your second degree?
    It's NHS so slightly easier for me :-) even still get student loan (albeit majorly reduced amount).

    Have some self-love! I doubt you make people want to vomit if you managed to socialise during your time at university.

    I feel fine about myself thanks - I was joking! I just don't have any particular wish to attract those less than half my age. Not really something that interests me

    The OP is extremely rude here. I will be 25 when I go back in September to do my second degree (I still get ID'd alot so don't imagine my age will be a problem) BUT, what-the-actual-f here?! I am going onto a course which is like 50% mature and 50% just out of sixth form, but even on my first degree which was predominantly younger people about 1 in 10 people in my class were in their late twenties and I didn't even realise until they told me, nor did I really think it was a big deal.

    Grow up.
    I wish I could feel more like this but I can't?...

    I think i'll be forced to start uni at 19 rather than 18


    Now if I went at 18 I wouldn't care about anyone on my course being younger or in in their late twenties, idc if they're my friends and 1-2+ years older or younger but if I was starting uni at 23 I wouldn't like the majority of the people in my course 1-2+ years younger and i'm older basically it would make me feel uneasy, okay i'm going to feel uneasy ( if I) start uni at 19 ( even though I have no problem talking/being friends with younger people)


    I don't know why I feel this way


    If I decided to do a second degree I wouldn't care though


    Idk:/

    Ik they do but I didn't really want to


    I'm doing my gcse's at 17 rather than 16 ( forced, for the better I guess but yeah -_-)

    I'm not looking forward to being the 17 year old in year12 and the 18 year old in year13 ngl -_-

    Idk why I feel like this but I do. Stupid but I really can't help it

    Have no problem being friends with people a year younger or two but for things like sixth-form/uni I don't really want to be a yera older than the majority of people on my class/course

    Even if I did my gcse's/ a-levels at the 'right' age and failed and had to take a yera back, I would be upset but if I knew I tried my best then I tried my best and I wouldn't be angry or upset with anyone else, it's my fault .

    If I decided I wanted to take a gap year at 18 in the end/start AS levels at 16 and then move to btec at 17-19 then start uni/ or decided to drop out of uni and then go back then I wouldn't care because it's my choice?

    Ik nothing can be done but still I can't switch the feeling off ( but I fele better about it than I did )

    Idk maybe if I go uni, in the second/third year I won't care and think why did I even feel like that before, so stupid


    Wish I could think like this now but I can't idk why


    Really it doesn't matter at all I mean no-one really asked me what gcse grades i have got they don't care and I dont care about their grades tbh but still.... feel like this

    One of my work mates is thinking of taking time off work to do an access course and do this, Idk many mature students so what should I tell her?

    Also is there no funding for access courses bc you are older? Would she be better off doing A levels and then starting uni at 24 instead? 24 is old though isnt it?
    24 is not old at all. What planet are you on? Lol. I am 22, I started university when I was 21 and I fit in socially and absolutely fine - I have even made a few friends there! Rather than discourage her, I wouldn't say anything unless you have something positive to say. There is funding for 25+, but if she wants to go for it then good on her. Just wish her luck! That's not much to ask, is it?

    And what kind of funding is there for 25+ People?
