Mature Student Office

The Mature Student Office supports mature students who are registered on full-time undergraduate programmes in UL and students on the Mature Student Access Certificate. The Mature Student Office (MSO) acts as a guide for mature students as how best to use the services available within the University. The work and supports provided by the MSO focus primarily on supporting the transition of mature students to third-level studies.



Access Office

The Access Office works to promote and support the participation of students from socio-economically disadvantaged groups who have been under-represented in the University sector.  The work of the Access Office may be broadly categorised into three areas, namely pre-entry school activities, post-entry student support including a bespoke transition to university course for Access students, and outreach work in the community. If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Access Office.  We look forward to hearing from you.



Disability Services

The Disability Support Service (DSS) are committed to the provision of educational opportunities to Students with Disabilities (SwD) on full-time undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, as well as mature students and international students with disabilities. We offer a dedicated support service to students registered with our service. The Disability Support Service welcomes and supports prospective students with a wide variety of disabilities. It is important that all incoming students with a disability are registered with our services so that initial needs assessment, tailored supports and assistive technology solutions and specific exams requirements (extra time, reader pens, etc.) can be provided to support your learning and development at UL.
