University College Cork is committed to the provision of educational opportunities to Mature Students on full-time undergraduate degree programmes, and offers a dedicated support service to them.  The Mature Student Office provides a consultation and advice service to prospective students, gives help and advice on the application procedure and provides support services for Mature Students who are registered on current degree programmes.

Mature Students make a unique contribution to the academic and social life of the university.  There is no stereotypical mature student; they come from a variety of backgrounds, have a wide and eclectic range of interest and have experienced many different lifestyles and careers.  They bring an enormous diversity of experiences with them, which means that they enrich not only the mature student community, but also the university as a whole.
