A mature student is defined as anyone aged 21 or over at the start of their undergraduate degree. King’s has a large mature student population - one in five of our undergraduate students is mature, so you're not alone! Our mature student community is very diverse and there’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ mature student. Nevertheless, we know that starting university a bit later in life can be a different experience than that of an eighteen-year-old.
To support mature students' at King's we have published A handbook for mature undergraduate students. This contains lots of useful information and links to other resources that might support you during your studies.
KCLSU Mature Student Network
Run by the Student's Union, the King's Mature Student Network is a place for anyone interested in the mature student experience. The network's key responsibilities are to ensure that all mature students can receive the support and guidance they need to positively engage with their time at King's, as well as to enable them to meet the wider community of mature students.
You can get in touch with the Mature Student Network via their Instagram profile.
