Mature Students

It’s never too late to go to university.  As a mature student we understand that you will have gained experience and expertise during your career, and here at the University of Chester we value it!

Mature Student BSc Psychology

Our mature students come from a diverse range of backgrounds including those who are starting their degree after raising a family, those looking for a career change and those choosing to study towards a degree in their retirement.

Our team can offer friendly help and guidance on subjects such as personal statements and student finance within your college, and can offer support through email outreach@chester.ac.uk or via telephone 01244 512450.

We hold regular Access Day visits for prospective mature students, giving them the opportunity to look around our sites, meet our colleagues from Admissions and Student Support and Guidance, and hear talks on chosen subjects, such as Accommodation and Student Finance.
