    Lol I believe mature is anything over 19 although if this is the case at 27 I feel very old! I'll do be doing biomedical science

    Tbh no but my course is no where near as in demand as nursing and they don't interview however the people on my course wanting to do pharmacy are waiting quite a while for interviews

    It's going pretty well, but it's difficult seeing all my mates starting to settle down and in proper jobs and careers now. There's this temptation to 'be a grown up', which i know isn't really a valid way of looking at things.

    It's a stress which I'm managing at the moment really. Haha there's a distinct absence of anyone else in my age bracket. Everyone is 18-20 or 30+

    The uni itself is a really good one though

    Hi, thanks for posting about this. I'm 24 and I'll be starting model design in September and I'll turn 25 shortly after the start. By the looks of it we're not alone.

    yeah trust me, I'm also 27 and you will feel old. But not always in a bad way. At least we had a bit of life before getting back into the system

    Over 19?! Christ I'll be turning 20 on my (hopefully) first day at the university, hope this isn't the case to be honest. I don't want to be labelled "mature" when I'm not exactly that!
