Mature Students

In Universiti Brunei Darussalam, mature students are those who are of 26 years of age and above. They may have left university for more than four years, or they may have recently graduated from other educational institutes after completing their Higher National Diplomas. Either way, the university as an institute that promotes life-long learning encourages mature students to join the university by streamlining application procedures, courses offered, and other available facilities with other students in the university.

Open days and Freshers’ Week

Mature students are welcome to attend the Open Days and/or Freshers’ Week in the university to familiar themselves with studying options, courses offered, and facilities including housing and sport facilities available in campus for their convenience. Find the link for next Freshers’ Week here.

Entrance qualification
