    No. My coursemate is 25 and he's thankful that he went to uni at that age because any younger and he felt like he wouldn't have been able to do it.

    Age has no bounds when it comes to uni.

    Of course not, whilst I was at uni there were mature students in my class who were 35+ in age. You should go for it!

    There are 60 year old mature students on TSR who are enjoying their time at uni, age doesn't matter when it comes to education.

    A friend of mine in pharmacy school (4 year course) who is 49 just graduated. So no, you're definitely not old. You're only 23, that's nothing!

    I've met loads of people your age on my degree, and they all had a normal university experience with societies and everything else, their age didn't matter. In fact they were the ones having a greater time because they were more confident and sure of themselves.

    I wish I was 23 when I went to university. I now have the confidence and maturity at 21 that would've made all the difference when I was 18 and just starting out at university, especially with my choice of degree and career path.

    Definitely go!

    You are just about as young as most university students.

    I've met people in their 30s or possibly in their early 40s in my course, and it is pretty common to have mature students at universities. So it shouldn't really intimidate anybody no matter how old you are.
