What is a mature student?
A mature student is defined as someone who attends a college or university some years after leaving school.
Generally, a mature student is thought of as being in their 30s, 40s and older, yet anyone over the age of 21 is actually classed as a mature student.
Mature learners come from a variety of different backgrounds and are motivated by career prospects as well as personal interests.
