    Hi all,
    Just wondering if there are any mature students starting Edge Hill uni this Sept? I'm kinda worried I'll be the oldest on my course.
    I'm doing Sports Therapy by the way.
    Any replies would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Are you over 40 or under 40?

    (I'm not going to Edge Hill btw, just wondered what was defined as 'old')

    25? Seriously, stop worrying. No-one will even notice.

    You could always email the course tutor or someone and ask how many mature students will doing the course this year.

    Thats a bit rude :eek:.

    He's probably been living life to the full. During those same years I lived in three different countries and had a really exciting career. Mature students come with far more than just age, don't assume that because we didn't do the university thing when we were kids that we've been living a wasted life.

    1-He's probably been living life to the full. During those same years I lived in three different countries and 2-had a really exciting career. 3-Mature students come with far more than just age, 4-don't assume that because we didn't do the university thing when we were kids that we've been living a wasted life.
    Why is it a bit rude? I just showed surprised. Is that rude?

    1- Or maybe he has not been doing so. Don't make unwarranted assumptions.

    2- Yet you left that exciting career.

    3- So do we, "immature" students.

    4- That's an unjustified assumption of yours. I never suggested nor implied that. All I said was that being 38 years old is quite old for a student. That is true, if age is something you feel uncomfortable with, maybe your experienced life didn't give you a much needed self-esteem after all.
