Support and Advice for Mature Students

Starting University after a break in your studies can sometimes be very daunting. Mature students have particular needs and concerns - we understand this.

Once you are a student at Newcastle University, you can access free and confidential support for all mature students. This includes the mature student orientation programme and Mature Students Society run by the Students' Union.

You will also have access to a student finance adviser who can provide free, impartial advice, including advice on childcare funding for UK students and childcare funding for international students.
