Mature Students – Application Process
At ICHAS we are aware that the decision to return to education after a number of years is a significant one. You need to be confident about your choice of programme and the support available to you. ICHAS supports mature students in a number of ways such as through our student portal which contains information on writing your first essay and academic referencing. We also deliver many modules through blended learning, a collaborative approach where students are supported through online discussion forums and self-directed learning.
If you are 23 years of age or over on the 1st of January on the year of entry then you are considered to be a mature student. Mature students should apply directly to ICHAS using the appropriate application form. Potential students will be assessed on the basis of application, previous experience and general educational standard. Admission to programmes will require applicants to complete an interview before they are offered a place.
Please consult the relevant programme pages for specific application and admission criteria regarding the programmes you are interested in.
