Mature Students at Yeats College

Mature Students

Yeats College welcomes mature applicants and encourages their pursuit of study. Previous mature students have come from a variety of backgrounds – some have left school early with little educational qualifications. Others have completed a previous Leaving Certificate but did not achieve their full potential. Some have re evaluated their future career prospects as current employment opportunities contract within various industry sectors. Whatever the reason for reconsidering your education, Yeats College welcomes you.

What Can Yeats College Offer the Mature Student?

The Educational Experience
Mature students have a different perspective on the learning experience as they are more focused and highly motivated. They excel within the Yeats College culture as the teacher-led independent learning provides an environment for them to achieve at the highest level. A specialist Mature Student Adviser is available to our students during their time at Yeats College for help in any area that requires more individual attention. In the past, students have sought assistance and support developing their skills in areas such as time management, organisational ability, study skills, essay writing and exam techniques.

Careers Advice
A dedicated Careers Advisor assists mature students through the process of CAO applications. Often mature students are happy to spread their options widely and apply for courses, particularly high demand courses, to the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States of America. The minefield that can be the application process is managed in a clear and concise manner. These very competitive courses accept students with the highest academic ability, the most outstanding personal statements and a well delivered interview. To that end, assistance with personal statements and mock interviews of a highly professional nature are provided.
