    Hey everyone,

    I'm thinking about applying to university as a mature student to study law. I'm approaching 30 and by the time I finish uni, I'll be around 33/34. How feasible would it be to begin a career in law at that age? Will I be overlooked in favour of a younger applicant? Will I be seen as too old to change careers?

    I'd love to hear back from anyone with advise but if there is anyone who knows what it's like starting as a mature student and coming out on the other side applying for jobs.

    Thanks guys,

    Its feasible although its very competitive.
    Not too old by any means, but hey will expect you to provide more than someone just out of uni, so hopefully you have more experience, maybe greater determination and sense of judgement.

    If you have contacts then utilise them. You will also need a strong belief in yourself. You also need to make sure your grades are strong.
