Loughborough welcomes mature students (those aged 21 and over at registration) for the wealth of life experience they bring to their studies.
You may be considering a career change, seeking the skills needed to secure promotion, or simply returning to education to study something you have always been interested in.
Whatever your motivation, we recognise that the decision to return to learning after a gap is usually a big one and is the start of a new journey.
Choosing to go to university as a mature student will, for some, involve significant life changes, and for this reason Loughborough University provides a wide range of support.
As a mature student at Loughborough University you can be guaranteed access to support and advice that will help you throughout your studies.
