Welcome - Mature Students

Over 60% of our students at the University of Chester are over the age of 21 when they start their course.

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
Maria Robinson, 1758-1800

Nevertheless, we recognise that you may face different pressures to other students. You may have different financial and family circumstances, especially if you have children.

So while you possess many advantages due to your maturity and experience, starting a higher education course can still be daunting.  In particular, some mature students are concerned about coping with the academic demands of a degree course. For others, family or work commitments can cause a headache. We appreciate this and will do all we can to support you, wherever you need it.

If you have any queries, or you would like any further information please contact:  Sandra Hughes, Telephone: 01244 511550, Email: hughes.sandra@chester.ac.uk
