Mature Student Survival

Welcome to The Mature Student Survival Blog – where you’ll find friendly and informative advice for students of all ages.

This blog is not intended solely for those of us who have returned to education at a later stage in life but is useful for all students, as well as anybody interested in life, family, food and supporting each other.

It’s an all encompassing blog fest that will provide you with a variety of hints and tips, not just advice about studying but will also help you juggle everything that takes place in life while chasing those As!!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the information provided and encourage you to get in touch with me if you have any questions or ideas for future posts by emailing
