    Hey guys,

    I'll be studying law at Bristol University next year.

    I'll be 24 when I officially start and worried If i'm too old...

    I'd ideally like to stay in Halls, but kinda worried that I'll be the oldest guy there and won't fit it.. even though I'm a really social etc.

    24 can't be described as old in any way - you'll probably be very in the middle in regards to age, with 18 year olds and people 30+

    No you're not to old, and no nobody is going to care about your age.

    There's about a 50% chance you will live beyond 100. And a good chance you will live much longer than that. Does it still feel like a couple years makes a difference?

    The **** is wrong with you? Nobody will give a **** about you being a few years older than other. If you were 10 years older than others then you should be worried.

    Hello ,

    A lot of mature students are worried that whatever age they are, they are 'too old' but I can tell you, when it comes to university you shouldn't worry about your age.
    If you are social, you'll be fine. Just go for it and enjoy yourself!
    Stay in halls and have a fantastic experience!

    Good luck

    I wasn't! However, I had a couple of friends in my course and who lived on my corridor that were mature students and they have become quite good friends. They shared their worries when they first started but we never saw a problem with it. They were like any other student, socialised just the same, worked just the same!

    I've been too young, too old and then, decrepit at uni. None of it mattered. You'll be just fine.

    They are all undergrads just starting uni btw, I'm the only postgrad in my flat. just ask the uni to put you will people of a similar age
