RGU Mature Student Network:
Our aim is to ensure mature students have a group of peers to make friends with, to socialise with, to share experiences with, and who can support each other during their time at university. To that end, we host several activities and events throughout the year, and we work with the Students’ Union and University to ensure we have access to a variety of extracurricular opportunities and support while at RGU.
The network recognises that mature students are at a different point in life than school leavers. Coming back to university again after time away, or starting university for the first time later in life, puts a different dynamic on the university experience, and this can often lead to feelings of isolation or that you don’t belong. In addition, trying to find a balance between university commitments and the demands of life is something we can all struggle with at times.
As such the network strives to offer a supportive peer group that helps and encourages each other, as well as giving students the opportunity to feedback concerns and suggestions to the Union and University. It is our intention to ensure everyone has the best university experience they can.
