Mature

Sarah Swanwick
My most important message is never feel alone! The University and Students’ Union have amazing help and support teams. We have students that run events, meetings and socials for mature students and students with caring responsibilities. A worry shared is a worry solved, and talking to other mature students and student parents during Welcome Week really made a big difference for me. Sarah Swanwick, BA (Hons) Health and Social Care

Joining the Mature Student's Facebook page was a real benefit for me to getting involved in Welcome Week activities, and throughout the whole of my first year. Through it, I found other mature students and could arrange meeting up with them to go to events. Nino Briffa, BA (Hons) Product Design

Hearing from current postgraduate students or recent alumni can be a real motivator, so look out for events that offer that opportunity. Libby Farrier-Williams, MSc Management and Marketing

Confetti students are just as much a part of NTU as all our other students, so we would encourage you to get involved in as many of the events listed on this website as possible. Welcome Week is a great opportunity to get to know Nottingham, the University and – most importantly – to meet new friends, so make sure you don’t miss out!
