    Hi, I'm starting at the University of Leeds next month as a mature student.

    I'm especially seeking others like me, particularly those on my Q300 English course, who might be able to share advice/thoughts/questions on these forums.

    All the best to everyone with their studies.

    What is everyone doing for Freshers'? I doubt I'll be out on either of the weekends, but might manage a mid week night out. Altho I don't even know what's on..

    Cheers for the welcome, feels weird being a mature student at the age of 22! I don't think I will be drinking at the weekends either. Although I am looking forward to exploring Leeds in the week.

    Hi, I'm 43, already living in Leeds (Roundhay) so I'll be commuting in by bus every day. I'm doing an MSc in Statistical Epidemiology and will be around during Freshers week (probably not much in the evenings though).
    There's a facebook group for University of Leeds mature students

    There's a list of what's on in the most recent set of info from the uni (in the welcome packs) if you haven't found that already. also look at the Lifelong Learning Centre website.

    I intend to have drunken nights for mature students :P and no coffee mornings thats for sure! Hopefully I can make some drinking friends during the enrolment/registering part of freshers week, still no welcome pack yet either.
