Since graduating from uni as a mature student, I often reflect on my decision to return to education. I was worried that I wouldn’t gain as much from the experience as I would have if I had gone at the ‘right time’. I couldn’t have been more wrong!!!
I often get asked by mature students ‘What is it like living in university accommodation?’ I find this question really hard to answer as I never lived on campus, but rented a house privately whilst I was at university.
So, I had taken the leap I had always dreamt of.
I had quit my full-time job after an 11-year career in Financial Services, managed to get through my Access course and coped financially (just!) and now I was heading to university. Money was a worry.
