Lifelong learning is an important principle of Norwegian education policy. Basic skills training and validation of prior learning play a significant part in our adult education policies. The goal is to provide everybody with the possibility of widening their competencies and developing their skills throughout life.
We actively encourage applications from mature students 21 and over from a wide variety of backgrounds. We appreciate the unique and valuable experiences older students bring to university and recognise that many already have the life skills needed for nursing. We accept a wide range of qualifications — not just A-levels.

At Sussex, we appreciate the experience and knowledge mature students bring to our University. We accept students with a range of qualifications and backgrounds, including students who apply on the strength of wider experience rather than formal academic qualifications. If you have been away from education for some time, we recommend you take an academic qualification before applying.
However, we know that mature students also have different expectations, responsibilities and needs so we have provided further information for mature students here. You can also visit the Mature Learners Widening Participation webpages where they provide information specific to mature students. Postgraduate students are by definition mature and usually have some experience of being in higher education already.
Returning to study can open up opportunities to a new, fulfilling career and increase your earning potential. In fact, many of our courses are designed to help people, like you, access new careers. These include accelerated study options on our paramedic sciences course, tailored entry options into physiotherapy, and our four-year medical degree that is designed to help mature students train to be doctors.
Not everyone's route to medical school is the same. While many medical students start their degrees straight from school or college, others choose to become a doctor later in life or through another pathway. If you are a student who is studying for or already has another degree, a mature student or even someone who has no qualifications at all, there are a number of routes into medical school you can access. Graduate candidates for medicine normally need a first or upper second class honours degree.
