New for 2018-19 RUSU have created student-run, peer-support networks for you. This is your opportunity to meet other students from similar backgrounds, share common experiences and receive advice and support from each other. RUSU’s Undergraduate Mature Students’ Officer will be running a peer-support network for Undergraduate Mature. You can find out when and where the next meeting is here.
After a year working as a Student trustee, I have realised I have a unique opportunity to help mature students at the University. We are often overlooked as a group and not given enough recognition. If elected I will strive to increase awareness for Mature students across the campus. And work with the students union to give us the support and recognition we want and need.
- work to gain more study space for mature students.
- Increase awareness across campus of the Mature student group R U Mature.
- Work with the student officers to make sure they realise the issues mature students face.
