SPONSORED: Age is no barrier to going to university – around a quarter of the University of East Anglia's students are mature students. If you're considering higher education, there's a chance to find out more at a free information evening on June 8.
A friendly, informal event, it is a chance to ask questions about study routes to university and speak to staff and current mature students about their university experience.
There will also be a tour of UEA, led by current students, and the opportunity to find out more about finance and funding and the specific support available – from disability support to the on-campus nursery.
'What the event is aimed at doing is trying to take away some of the barriers for mature students and for them to discover the advantages of returning to learning for their personal development and career prospects,' says UEA mature student advisor Trevor Smith. 'Around 25pc of our students are mature students – you're classed as mature if you're over 21 – and this event is about letting people know that if they decide to come to university there's huge support available and to give them a
taste of life on campus,' says Trevor.
