Welcome to the UoW Mature Students Society! 

This society is run by mature students, for mature students (both undergrad and postgrad) of the University of Worcester. The society will serve as a place to meet and socialise with fellow mature students who share similar concerns, situations, and experiences. 

We hope you'll join us and we'd love to meet as many people as possible. Not sure about joining? Register your interest and find out a little more by visiting our website or emailing uowmss@gmail.com.

Nervous about turning up alone? Email us and one of our friendly committee members will meet you prior to any event so you won't have to! 

Come along and make some new friends - the 'university experience' is for everyone - sometimes it just needs to be adapted a little ;-)

The society committee members are as follows:

  • Chair - Lou Le Page
  • Vice-Chair - Robyn Platt
  • Secretary - Gemma Gartside
  • Treasurer - Amy Rose
  • Inclusivity Rep - Hannah Dobbs
  • Social Secretary - Neal Morris
  • Social Secretary - Olivia Kearney
  • Recruitment Officer - Jess Melksham
  • Wellbeing Officer - Lou Davies

Membership fees are £5 per year or £2.50 per semester (payable on joining).

 

OUR AIMS: 

  • To hold regular, informal socials on and off campus (coffee mornings, nights out e.g.)
  • To organise social events throughout the academic year geared towards a mature audience
  • To establish a positive social networking presence, providing a forum for mature students to share ideas, experiences, concerns, and to meet other mature students
  • To welcome and support any mature students who are new to the University
  • To encourage and increase mature student participation in University events
  • To support students with children by hosting child-friendly socials and providing a network for parents where they can find support 
  • To ensure mature students feel they are a valued part of the student body
  • To make settling in to University easier by placing a focus on additional welcome events in the first semester 
  • To subsidise social events, where possible

 

Meeting Times

The society holds regular coffee mornings and we'll always email in advance to let you know about planned events (we also post these on the website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). We also hold regular socials, nights out, fundraising events, and more!
