Join Simon Phillips (Disability Adviser), Kate Cracker (NLP practitioner) and Oliver Tatler (Careers & Employability Manager) for an online matures student welcome event from 10 am to 2.45 pm (including a lunch break).

What is this about?
For many students who have been out of the education system for a while, starting a university course can both be exciting and worrying. It can involve lots of change including readjusting to an academic environment and lifestyle, meeting new people, taking on new responsibilities and roles, and getting used to new environments and ways of doing things.

What will I get out of the day?
We will cover various topics that we hope will be useful to you, and you will also have the chance to ask any questions you might have.
