Mature students

If you are thinking about returning to education, our open days will help you to explore opportunities at Bristol and decide if we are right for you.

A mature student is anyone aged 21 and over when starting their course at the University of Bristol. Join our mature students' drop-in sessions or book one of the talks to find out more about being a mature student at Bristol.
