Mature students

mature student focus groupThere is no such thing as a 'typical student' which is why at the University of Essex we are committed to providing support to students and potential students from a variety of backgrounds and of varying ages.

  • By working in partnership with other local education providers we seek to promote adult education through initiatives such as Adult Learners Week.
  • Through visits to local Access to HE courses, and the annual Access conference during the autumn term, we are able to give specialised support to students at the point of application.
  • Before mature students start their undergraduate course with us we are able to give them extra support as they make their transition back into the world of education through the House Warming induction event and various fresher's events aimed at mature students. (Please note that the Housewarming event is currently only open to undergraduate UK students studying at the Colchester campus)

If you work with adults who are considering studying in higher education, or you yourself are considering entering university as a mature student, then contact John Orchard  on 01206 873752 or have a look at the mature student section of the university website.
