I am considering going back to college as a mature student. However, I am slightly concerned - all the photos show pimply undergrads and all the mature students have cren neck sweaters and trousers at least 1 inch too short?

WIll I be risking any style or panache I have managed to hold onto in my aged years, or will it all go downhill from the second I apply for a student loan?

depends what are you studying?

for example, if it is engineering jsut give up adn wear a baggy t-shirt and fleece for the rest of your life.

you will have to work the older student hippy angle. lots of crocheted waistcoasts and maybe something woven through your hair.

I wonder if henna might be appropriate

I think eyebrows will need to be au naturel

Does this apply to interviews or just enrolment do you think?
