Mature & Carers Student Network

  • Groupsicon


This network is for all students who identify as Mature students or students with caring responsibilities:

  • KU defines a mature student as someone who is at least 22 years old at the start of their studies.
  • A carer is any student of any age who provides unpaid support to someone who could not manage without their help (National Union of Students, 2013)

This network is for students to meet each other; run campaigns, or simply socialise with one another.  The network will elect a Representative who will attend the Union Meetings.

Regular forums will be set up to aid communication between members.

In order to join this group, you must self-identify as a Mature Student or one with caring responsibilities. Membership in this group is anonymous.
