Mature and affiliated students - Students' View
The University of Cambridge welcomes mature students, who want to commit to a full-time course with the same demands, opportunities and facilities that our school-leaving students experience. We treat and assess everyone individually regardless of their circumstances.
Some of our mature students are coming back to education after taking several 'gap years', others have taken time out to start families, while a number have been working for many years. On this area of our website you can read about some of our mature students, who come from a diverse range of backgrounds.
We asked some current mature students the kind of questions you might like to ask them yourself.
