million+ and NUS mature student workshops

21 Feb 2012

Calling all mature undergradautes!

million+ and the National Union of Students are undertaking a joint research project looking at mature student pathways to university and how universities and student unions can best support students who enter university for the first time later in life.

As part of the research we are holding a series of workshops around the UK to explore the experiences of mature undergraduates in higher education and the people who support mature students. Through facilitated discussion in a secure environment, you will be able to share your different perspectives and generate ideas for local and national improvements.

The workshops are scheduled as follows:

Wednesday 29th February – Staffordshire University
Location: Stoke campus
Time: 3 – 5pm

Thursday 1st March – Anglia Ruskin University
Workshop 1: 10am – 12pm at Cambridge campus
