I was officer last year for Mature Students and Postgraduates and really enjoyed the role. I am a Creative Writing mature student myself who came back into education in my late 20’s and have found it both an amazing experience but also a daunting one.

I have learnt a lot in the past year about things that could help change the uni lives for mature students and have many ideas I would like to ensure we are involved and integrated as I believe every student matters and we all deserve to have a great experience while we are at university.

Here are some points which I feel are important and will strive to achieve:

  • More events tailored to mature students and events which cater to as many people as possible while working around other life commitments.
  • Ensure that academic help is still widely available for mature students who are returning to education.
  • Having a meet and greet session at the start of the year and hopefully frequently during the year.
