Male, 23 years, tells how he was judged "too old to be a student"
"I went to get my phone fixed at a local mobile company. When the person started fixing it he asked if I was from around here. I said yes, I am a student [at the University] and I received a reply of "your a bit old to be a student aren't you." He seemed to base a stereotype of university with age and thought based on my appearance (without knowing my age) that I was too old."
"I felt ok, not shocked. Though this was the first time anyone ever judged my age whilst I have been studying at university. I was more surprised."
