    Every uni will have mature students but not every uni will offer equal incentives for mature students.

    I've been considering Loughborough because their Product Design and Engineering courses all look rather good, which was enough to get me interested, but having a look round their site they also have a lot of financial incentives to offer to mature students:

    It would be good to know if there are similar opportunities for mature students at other universities, as I can't seem to find a comprehensive comparison of what's available.

    Royal Holloway offer £1000 pa to students who have completed an Access course and have an income under £25,000, in addition to £1500 pa for any low-income student.

    Students are also eligible for London weighting on their student loan, even though it's outside the M25.
