Mature students often come to university feeling they lack something, like conventional qualifications - but the truth is they have a huge amount to offer in life experience, new perspectives and in their commitment to their studies. That's why I want us to have more mature students, and from as varied backgrounds as possible: it changes the conversation in ways that are really important for us as academics and for the rest of the student body.
