    Mature Student Representation

      When the university is developing new career support mechanisms and features, the mature student is often not brought into account, social event and the likes also.

      Why you think it is important

      The mature student is still very much a minority when it comes to university, a lot of the benefits and features that are part of UWS often focus around younger people effectively starting their lives, with the mature student being left behind.

      Is there anything else you think we should know?

      As a mature student I found it difficult to mix with younger people and meet new people.

    9:54am on 6 Jun 19 Thanks for submitting this. The Students Association has a Mature Students Group, if you're interested in getting involved in this you can come into the union and speak to us about it. Alternatively, at freshers the group will be relaunched, or you can e-mail me on and we can discuss what you would like to see.
