The transformational benefits of a university education aren’t just for the young
A university degree can transform your life at any age, and each year thousands of mature students enrol on degree courses. For some, it is a second chance for the education they missed out on in their youth. For others, it can be an opportunity to further a passion or interest in the company of like-minded enthusiasts or change career tack.
Clearing is popular with mature students who are less likely to have been helped by schools and colleges to meet the earlier deadlines. Universities keen to fill their places advertise their courses throughout the summer and last year direct entries in August and September were up by 14% on 2016. Of the 16,950 people accepted at university last year after applying directly through clearing, over a third, 67%, were aged 20 or over.
