Mature Student Support

Hello and welcome to Munster Technological University- Cork Campus! 

Returning to education after a break, or entering it for the first time as a mature student can be daunting but exciting. MTU Cork Campus strongly encourages applications from mature candidates and is continually working towards wider entry routes in order to increase participation of adult learners.

The Mature Student brings with him/her life experiences along with determination and focus, all of which are conducive to successful learning. There are a wide variety of courses at certificate, diploma and degree level to choose from within MTU Cork Campus and we hope to assist you through your college journey!
