    I doubt it. Most start at 18 maybe, however by the end of that they're all 19. Which leaves 2nd year, 3rd year, abroad/placement year, masters, PhD, etc... not including mature students, foundation years etc.

    TBH this is a nice forum. I hope to still be here occasionally when I leave uni.
    No, I meant most of the users on this site are under 19. Sorry, should have made it clearer.

    Hey - I am 57 - I went on here because I have kids who are at uni. My daughter is doing a PhD and my son is just about to start an MSc.

    There are a lot of folks who need advice from us oldies!
    One day I will be this old and still on TSR :moon:

    Come to think of it 25 does seem too old enough. Clearly, I've risen beyond the limits of a mere student and into the realm of the grown ups.

    A realm alien to most of you lot.
    Paedophile! Some of us are 13-17, I would suggest you leave the forum before the police find out.

    I suppose I could help people out in the finance subforum but for some reason I feel like this site doesn't deserve my generosity. Nice to see you though!

    If i may what are you going to pursue?

    Yes you are too old and it's weird/creepy.
    Most of us on this site are 14-19 years old

    I don't remember who exactly, but some TSR volunteer reviewed by resume which I'm sort of very grateful
    That was probably threeportdrift . She (I've always assumed she's a she, though may be wrong, come to think of it :eek: ) reviewed mine too :five:

    We need wisdom on TSR so older students contribute more than most.

    And you've looked in every single university sub-forum to do that?
    In every single subject area forum?
    In all the careers and jobs forums?

    No point digging, you already look foolish.

    Agh - something in Geography or History. My original BSc is Geography but I love the history of London and British Cities. But my background is oncology so I don't know maybe health but on the other hand I am 2 years away from a bus pass.... And do I NOT feel like that. Pierced nose, Doc Martens - quirky hair, daughter who keeps asking where I am....

    A- *******s
    B- even if it were true that in itself proves nothing.

    TSR does not collect data on age. To say most users are 14-19 is nothing short of a gross generalisation with no evidence to back it up.

    The average user is far more likely to be in the 17-22 bracket.
