Mature Students & Graduates

main content

Mature students have some particular concerns about finding appropriate employment.

Mature graduates often undervalue their experience.  Employers are always saying that 'a degree is not enough' and it is the skills that graduates have which add value to organisations.  You have to be able to demonstrate the benefits of your maturity.  It is more than likely that you already have a range of skills that are considered essential requirements by most employers. These skills may have been developed as a result of a period of employment, or managing a home, or bringing up a family, or a combination of all three. You will also have proved to the world that you have the intelligence and personal tenacity to meet the demanding academic standards required here at the University of Strathclyde.
