At Aston University we are dedicated to supporting mature students as you embark on your higher education journey, whether you are returning to education, wanting to upskill in a particular subject area or change of career path.

Whatever your reason maybe, we want you to know there is lots of support available for students over the age of 21 who bring a wealth of experience, enrich our learning environment and are highly valued here at Aston.

Support for Mature Students

Throughout your University journey, you can always chat to our Student Advice Team at The Hub. This could include information on finance, accommodation, and other support services. You may also be eligible for our Aston Mature Adult Learners Scholarship and Aston Alumni Undergraduate Scholarship.

Please head to our dedicated Mature Students page where you can see some top tips which were created by some of our Mature Students for Mature Students.
