MatSoc Welcome New & Returning Students!  to - The Mature Students Society for part and full-time students


We are a society for students of varying ages, including Home/EU/International students.

There is no minimum or maximum age limit.

We aim to offer mutual support and encouragement socially, also to offer peer support in sharing and signposting students to any relevant campus information, service or resource.

We want 2018/19 to be our best year yet and live up to our reputation for 'best engagement' with Uni life, and also for our diversity and inclusivity. 

£4 membership fee is renewable as from 1st September 2018 and is valid until 31st August 2019. 


Regular socials

Members and committee will be polled in Semester 1 for most mutually convenient availability. 

All venues chosen for future socials will have non-alcoholic drinks available. Meet-ups are informal casual and for anyone who just fancies a chat.

If you would like to meet with someone one-to-one beforehand please email to arrange.

Membership is £4 per year and in accord with LUU rules a number of associate members are Beckett University students, as are UoLeeds Alumni.

Socials/events are open to non-members and members alike.



Check our Facebook page and Twitter where we'll announce upcoming events.

We aim to have a variety of events throughout the year, and  we are currently planning 17/18 events, suggestions for them are welcome, please contact us if you have any ideas or would like to get involved in organising an event.
