The Mature Student Office (MSO) is looking for mature students to join a new team of Mature Student Ambassadors. Students themselves are best placed to tell their own story and to encourage and advise prospective and new mature students on what it is like to return to learning in third-level.

Our only requirement is that you are a mature student who is studying on a full-time undergraduate course in UL, and that you are willing to help promote opportunities for mature students in UL in an enthusiastic, positive way.

Emailing a prospective mature student to advise them what your particular course is like.
Showing small groups of adult learners from the community around the campus
Speaking about your life and journey as a mature student at MSO events on campus (e.g. visiting adult learner groups, MSO information sessions, Adult Learner Festival events etc)
Helping out at the Mature Student Welcome Programme and the Mature Student Access Certificate Orientation – speaking with incoming mature students and showing them around the campus.
Informally mentoring new first mature students
