The Mature & Part-Time Students’ Officer works to represent all Mature and PT students here at Leeds Trinity University. They work throughout the year on a variety of projects, raising the issues faced by Mature and PT Students, relating to childcare, travel and others. A mature student is generally defined as a student beginning an undergraduate programme at the age of 21 or above, or beginning a postgraduate programme at the age of 25 or above
"Success doesn’t come easy, you have to work hard!
The concerns commonly faced by Mature and Part Time Students are balancing study and family life, the need to work, child care/career demands and more complex financial needs. I am currently in my first year at Leeds Trinity University studying LLB Law. As a mature student myself I can fully appreciate the diverse and complex needs of the Part Time and Mature Students. I have four children and I also work on a voluntary basis with Citizen Advice Witness Support Service at Bradford Magistrates Court. If elected I would seek to represent Part Time and Mature Students by becoming the recognised voice of our cohort, by actively seeking your opinion and concerns on the issues that effect your studies and academic life."
