Uni, starting a little later than usual.
Starting uni after taking a gap year (or three) can be even more stressful and worrying, not at MMU however. The campus makes up approximately a third of Oxford street, with all the resources and needs you might have being found right there. Open spaces outside to enjoy in the summer and warm cosy inside social hubs for the winter.
When starting uni as a mature student you may feel above making friends with all the 18 and 19 year olds on your course but remember you're all adults in the same boat and you're sure to foster relationships you may soon not forget.
I would also reccomend sitting down with your personal tutor and setting up a plan, to get yourself back into the swing of studying and participating in a class. The staff and lecturers at MMU are more than happy to help you reestablish yourself in an educational setting.
Professional, kind and understanding, the lecturers in staff are highly trained and professional with an empathetic understanding of any situation you may find yourself in.
The facilities are also top tier, for example journalism students are enjoying access to newsrooms, state of the art studios and some amazing bits of tech to help foster your learning. The humanities buildings that these facilities are housed in are even more impressive with a mix of modern and classic architecture.
Manchester metroploitan university also has many clubs, societies and groups for you to join, many focused on inclusivity and making the university a safer more accepting place for everyone.
Sometimes though it can be hard to make it in person, which is what makes the online services amazing, the My MMU app available online and smartphones is a direct line to your course and all the tools you need to succeed, the library, your assignments and even lecture slides are all available in one convenient place. Whether you miss a day or just want to have a revisit to previous weeks of learning it's all there for you.
Accommodations are fairly close to campus too, with many students choosing to either live on campus in halls or in uni housing in and around Manchester. Of course this lends itself to an amazing social life, with Manchester having an amazing nightlife and there always being events on for the masses manchester won't have you bored and you'll make many new mates.
Overall MMU is a safe environment to foster your learning and has a highly qualified staff you can place your trust in to help you achieve your goals in your course and uni life.
