I’d like to tell you about my time at university. I was a mature student.I didn’t go to university until I was 25. I was doing a Bachelors Degree and it was a bit of a challenge. Some people take a year out but I’d been away from education for 8 years. I had to work my way through uni so I was very busy. Sitting exams at the end of each year was a new experience for me as well but I really enjoyed higher education. The social life was great as well. I don’t think I’ve ever had so many friends. I’m thinking of doing a Masters Degree soon. Though that might be through distance learning as I have a full-time job now.
