If students are over 25 they should be funding themselves and getting no subsidies unless they are doing an occupationally minded course like nursing.
Thats literally the Tory attitude. That academic/artistic subjects should be the arena of the elite or those in the better schools/with the financial means or that education should be purely geared towards employment rather than enjoying learning new things.
I left a stable job, done an access course for a year, decided what it was I wanted to do (which the government happens ot have a shortage of) and ironically the person currently in that profession classes me/my friends at uni who are both my age (as a Mature student) for doing that as a 'bellend'. @Brownie
. People get all self righteous and on their high horse on 'how i speak to people' on here and the manner i communicate things and my general attitude, well get on Brownie's general attitude.
Mature students should get the same discounts (including at Everton FC) and be allowed to do the same subjects with the same funding as all other students. Otherwise you just fall into the Tory trap of divide and rule. My Mum was a mature student, she still got discounts at the cinema for me and her. Why should Everton be any different?
