Hi,

I'm 22 and am starting at Salford in September to study Journalism & English Lit. Anyone else here my sort of age or a bit older?

Will they take my age into account when I apply for accomodation? It would be nice to be placed with at least one or two people who are in a similar situation to me...

Thanks

I'll be 21 by the time I go to University, I've put salford as a choice. Hopefully I will get a place I will be studying English language and English literature.

By the time I get to Salford I'll be at least 23 so I'll be classed as "mature" even if I have a mental age of 7 =P

I'm 23 now, I start in September and will be almost 24! My family all think I'm a bit past it to be going to uni as I buggered up the first time round but better late than never. They're writing me off as a pensioner I'm sure...

You being 22 and calling yourself a mature student makes feel ancient lol
I am exactly 10 years older and starting a MA in Septembre at Salford. I am really excited.

Good luck to you.

Hi,

I'm 23 and applied to Salford two weeks ago - everything has happened really fast, I had an audition last week and got an unconditional offer for BA Hons Media and Performance which I've accepted! I'm so excited, I'll be nearly 24 when I start in Sept as my birthday is October. So I'll be classed as a mature student too - I've lived away from home since I was 19 when I first went to uni and buggered it up as well, so I'll still be living in my own place with my boyfriend and working, hopefully, around the course - no intention of living in halls but I hope this won't affect my making friends etc

It's weird because 23 is still so young but a lot has happened in the 5years since I left school - I'm sure a lot of you feel the same - and I feel really old sometimes! I'm glad to see there are other mature students - is anyone else studying the same or a similar course?

Thanks for reading, Amy x

I'm 25 and starting in September. I'm staying in the IQ, and i ticked a box on the form to ask to live with other mature students. I think you also have that option with the Uni's halls

That's where I'm staying, and I ticked that option too.

I can't believe how quickly the time has come round, I leave my job 5 weeks tomorrow. I keep veering between excitement and sheer terror. :eek3:

Hi there, i'm with Sauzy2009... i turn 30 in Nov 09 and so will be an old foggie compared with most folks on here!! :/ Already been to university when I was 18, got a degree and I'm really looking forward to doing it again with an older, wiser(!??) head on my shoulders. I think this second time around will be even better tbh.

Hi pamalamalam,

Great to hear you're so excited - we're looking forward to you joining us! I think you'll be surprised about the age range of your classmates though, my money's on you not being anywhere near the oldest so don't worry about that!

Let me know if you've any questions at all
