Hey guys,

I just wondered if there were any other mature students starting in September?

Although i'm extremely excited about starting i'm also really nervous about being much older (27) than the young'uns starting uni this year.

I just wondered if anyone else was in the same boat? It would be good to get to know some other people

Haha thanks for making me feel a little better about it! Went to the open day yesterday, people looked quite young! I'm going to be studying digital marketing, how about you? Are you going to be living in halls?

I'm going to be starting radiography at 30. I have been assured I won't be the oldest person on the course.

It's nice to know there will be some other oldies about

I kinda worried about that too. I'm 22 which isn't that old but I've already done an undergrad degree and am going for a second and feel strange about being back at school with a younger bunch

I'm doing Diagnostic Radiography and I'm 25 - very worried about fitting in and the logistics of how it's going to all work!

It's nice to know i'm not the only one! Wasn't expecting anyone to reply to this thread!! I'm sure the uni will do something for mature students to help us settle in! and accommodation wise, their going to know that we don't want to live with 18 year olds and visa versa!

Yea, I intend to find a shared house. I don't personally fancy halls as I think I'm a bit old for that scene.

What are your plans for accommodation?

Wahey! Looking at your username I can tell we're on the same wavelength (no pun intended originally).

Still unsure at the min, I emailed student housing and asked about what options there were for mature students as I don't particularly want to be living with 18 year olds (and vice versa!) and was told they try to put mature students together in halls, so might do that! Hopefully there's no nightly fire alarms!!

From all the Facebook pages everyone seems like 17 or 18 so I hope I don't have to live with people that age! I'm doing criminology and forensic studies. Yeah I want to live in halls for the first year just for the 'Uni experience' but after that privately renting if I make it past the first year haha are you going to stay in halls??

That's exactly my plan too! Was going to live at home and commute but would probably end up making no friends to live with in the 2nd/3rd year! Haha. Apparently when you apply for accommodation there's a 'mature student' option you can select where they'll match you up with people that are a similar age!

Hi Lauren,

I'm also a mature student (30) starting this September. Feel free to message me and can perhaps try and organise a group to go out.

Healthcare science (cardiac physiology).

I've been looking at some one bedroom flats, but it would be nice to meet some people early on. Have you decided yet?

I see you can get studio flats in Francis Drake Hall, or I might apply for mature-student halls, really not sure....
