is this actually still up and running? either im being incredibly dim or blind.. as i cant see any activity since 2015.  There have been no freshers events? or contact? about activities, plans etc.  I understand that a lot of mature students are post grad etc, but there are plenty of us first years who would have appreciated a trip out for freshers that didnt involved getting drunk, vomitting on doorsteps and coming home plastered in neon paint..maybe...

Would appreciate some feedback.

Hi Debbie,

Thanks for your YMC submission - so we've spoken by email, but to reiterate for everyone else, the Union now has a Mature Student and Student Parent Network in lieu of a society, to support these students and provide opportunities for them. It's been active, not in the sense of a soceity and not using those channels on social media until very recently when I managed to get access to them. We have an email addresss: (which people can email for queries), and are trying to organise a meet and mingle event so that mature students and student parents can feedback and tell us what they'd like to see done, so watch this space!

Kind regards,

Arun Aggarwal
