Mature Student Support

What is Mature Student Support?

Our mission is to support all mature students in UCC studying for full-time undergraduate degrees. We offer a wide range of support and initiatives designed for mature students to enhance your mature student experience. Our office is a place where mature students can come to be listened to and ask questions in an open, non-judgmental and empathetic environment. We advise mature students on how best to use the student services available within the University. We provide mature student-specific support responding to the diverse and unique needs of all our mature students.

What support can they provide?

  • During the academic year, you will get email invitations to events we will host. From tea/coffee chats to end-of-year get-togethers. 
  • Orientation for mature students includes academic skills sessions to help you be as prepared as possible.
  • We offer extra tutorial support (when possible) to support you with specific modules or subjects.
  • Information on all student supports provided by your Mature Student Support Officer.
