If by the traditional way, you mean via UCAS, I'm pretty sure everybody has to regardless of age.

There is no age limit, even if you were 95 you would still have to apply via UCAS.

You're only classed as a mature student at 21 if you've lived independently of your parents for 3 years (for non-academic purposes), if you are estranged from them, if they are both deceased or if you are married. Else it's 25.

When it comes to performance indicators and measures of mature students (and similar stats) whether a student has independant status or not isn't considered....21+ is mature (which is a bit daft - there is a wealth of difference between a 22 yr old applicant who simply took a few yrs out after A levels and a 40 yr old who didn't even finish O levels but has discovered a new interest in education).
that's totally daft! So if a students takes a gap year then starts, by the time they come to finals, they're classed as matures for reporting purposes? That is more than daft!
