Starting University as a mature student can be both an exciting and daunting time with much of the University’s resources sometimes appearing to be aimed at recruiting younger, undergraduate students. I asked my colleague Georgie to give us an insight into her experience as a mature student at the University of Worcester and here is what she had to say…

Welcome to your first academic week at uni! University lectures are completely different to sixth form classes.

However, it’s still important to enjoy yourself and make the most out of the opportunities given to you at university.
When thinking about my time at University, I want to make the absolute most of the experience. For me, first year was a learning curve and there were times that were definitely less successful than others.
I always strive to better myself both academically and personally, so as a result I thought I would comprise a ‘bucket list’ of things that I want to improve, achieve or experience this year.
