In many universities there are now more adults as students than young people straight from school. Yet many universities continue to act as if no such change had taken place. This text asks: what are university access policies and how do they connect with practice?; how do adults experience universities, and how do universities assist them?; what can universities realistically do to improve the access to and experience of university for adults?
