University Of Edinburgh Mature Applicant Qualifications
Entry requirements for mature applicants.
Mature students are a valued part of our community, making up around 15 per cent of our undergraduate population.
As a mature applicant, you are expected to meet our normal entry requirements unless you also meet our definition of an adult returner – someone who has had a continuous gap of at least three years in their formal education, and who has not already gained a degree.
More information on entry requirements for adult returners is available on our mature students website and our College pages.
