The Shaping Futures outreach programme has a dedicated hub with information and useful advice for those considering a return to education, including the option to speak directly to current mature students studying at Liverpool Hope University.

The Student Room provides a forum to connect with other students and likeminded applicants and hosts discussions on a range of topics, including this thread on issues and questions from mature learners. 

UCAS Mature Students

UCAS (University and College Admissions Service) is the organisation through which you will submit your application to study at University. Here is a handy page with tips and information on the application process specifically designed for mature students.

Student Finance Calculator

It is important to understand exactly what funding you may be eligible for and a good place to start is by using the Government’s finance calculator. Don’t forget to also check with individual universities and other organisations about any scholarships or additional support which may be available – more details and links are available above in our Mature Learner’s Guide.

UCAS Tariff Calculator

Many Universities display their typical entry requirements as qualifications such as A-Levels or UCAS points. Using this tariff calculator you can work out how many UCAS points any major qualification is worth. Alternatively, you are welcome to contact us to discuss eligibility based on your situation.
