Mature students

The HEA (2021) shows that mature students continue to underperform relative to non-mature students. Our own mature students have also often discussed with us the difficulties with coming back into education.

Workshops and drop-in sessions

We have been listening to your concerns and for this reason, we in Psychology have developed a set of skills-based workshops and drop-in sessions specifically curated for mature students.

What will I learn in these workshops?

These workshops will be focused on helping you develop skills that are useful throughout your degree. For example, workshops may be on helping you with academic writing, critical thinking or understanding statistics.

When will the workshops take place?

The workshops will take place once a month and the dates of these will vary depending on the year you are in. These will be timetabled for mature students so please keep an eye on your calendar.

Important information:

If you are a mature student and these workshops do not appear on your timetable, please email
