    Of course you will. Just attend societies and talk to your course mates. There were 40 year olds making friends with people in the class too.

    I was a mature student, literally no one cared. I hung out with my classmates in between lessons, I got involved in student media, and I joined a bunch of societies.

    The mature students who had trouble fitting in were the ones who made a big deal about their age ALL THE TIME. "Oh, I'm so old. I'm the oldest one here. You are all babies compared to me. No one wants to talk to me because I'm so old."

    Yes of course you will.

    Most students don't care about the age and 26 is fine. You'll fit in.

    Talk to people in your lectures, tutorials, join clubs and societies.
