Cambridge has three mature colleges, providing almost all the courses. I read online that mature students applying to mature colleges have a better chance to at least get an interview(although Cambridge interviews more students than Oxford for 18-year-olds as well). I heard mature college tutors have a good understanding of mature students' circumstances as well, obviously.
On the other hand, Oxford only has Harris Manchester College and provides only 13 courses. Does this mean Oxford is less willing to accept mature students to courses not provided by Harris Manchester College?
I'd much prefer Oxford, but because of this, I'm wondering if I should apply to Cambridge instead.
