    I am currently studying and access course in humanities and social sciences with a view to applying for a BSc in psychology. We recently had a HE fair with some students from Kings telling us about the university. I was all set to add Kings as a choice on my UCAS application when I started reading up about it online, and became a bit discouraged as it is ranked within the top five for this subject globally. Is it really worth me still applying for entrance next September regardless of how well I do on my course as I am a mature student with small children?

    Kings is a brilliant university and I would have loved to have been able to go. I personally would say go for it, what do you have to lose? Worst thing they can do is say no to you! As a mature student (with children), I would expect that you are pretty good with stress and time management etc and so I don't see any reason why you should feel discouraged!

    Good luck!

    Hi hug_the_psych;74303060

    Thank you so much for your reply. That has made me feel more confident in applying, and as you say the worst that can happen is that they say no.
    Many thanks
