Welcome to the Mature Students Peer Support Group [MSPSG]

*Peer Support Group of the Year 2022*

Our community of mature students is a beautiful mosaic of individuals from different backgrounds who have returned to education for various compelling reasons.

We are dedicated to providing personalized assistance and guidance to each student throughout their academic journey by connecting them with the appropriate UEA resources, such as Well-being Student Life, Disability Support, Learning and Teaching, Finance, and Residential Life teams. In case you need further assistance, our Wider Participation Officer, Gemma Standen, is readily available to address any questions you may have.

Our UEA Mature Students page offers more information on mature student life, including dates and links to events for mature students and commuters. If you commute to campus regularly, you'll find valuable information on our Commuters page, including details on commuter breakfasts and Coffee meet-ups. Finally, our Students with Caring Responsibilities page is an excellent resource for adult learners with caring responsibilities.
