As per the title. How is the university for mature students? Are there many/any mature undergraduate students?

Anyone with experience from their time there?

Thanks

Hi John! As a mature student there's lots to get involved in at Durham. All of our colleges are welcoming of mature students and there is a wide range of support available to help mature students get the most out of their University experience. See more here: https://www.dur.ac.uk/study/ug/apply/mature/

We also have a very active Mature Students Association which runs a wide range of events and activities throughout the year. You can find out more here: https://www.durhamsu.com/groups/matu...sociation-e5ef

We know that starting University as a mature student can be a daunting prospect but please don't worry, Durham is a very welcoming place and you will soon find others in the same boat

Thank you Durham University

Can I ask, what accommodation would you suggest for a mature student (late 20s) who wants their own space and would rather be around other mature students? Is there an option for that or would someone be better off renting privately?
