Mature Students

At BPP University we have a very balanced combination of younger and older students. We understand that your age can affect your approach to study, the way you learn and your self-confidence. We want to ensure that everyone feels a sense of belonging as this will enrich your University experience. We know that some students may have family, work, caring or other personal commitments and that this can make the balance between these and study a challenge.
