Mature Students 

Deciding to study at university, potentially after a break from full-time education, is a big step for anybody, which is why we have a range of support services in place to ensure you are able to achieve your goals.  

Extended Degrees

Although not just for mature students, extended degrees are four-year programmes which provide an additional 'foundation' year at the start, giving you the skills you need to ensure you are equipped to successfully complete your chosen degree. 

Extended degrees at Roehampton are a great option if you don't have traditional qualifications or do not meet the requirements to go straight onto a three-year undergraduate degree. We welcome applications from students of all ages and backgrounds who would relish the opportunity to attend university and have the drive to succeed.
