Mature Student Applications
Mature Students are generally between 21 and 30 years of age and have no dependents. They join the programme in mid-August for an 11 months period that is intended to support inquiry into life in the light of Krishnamurti’s teachings. Mature students are required to work for 20 hours per week in return for free food and accommodation. They live with staff and students and are a vital part of the community. Please contact our Recruitment Officer, on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested to apply.
Applications are invited from September – June. Application forms and the application checklist are available on the right sidebar.
Applicants should submit applications in full for consideration.
If considered favourably, the applicant would be invited to attend a prospective week at Brockwood. All residential staff, mature students and students have had a prospective week. This week is intended to give applicants a better idea of what the School is like and to help them decide whether or not the School is right for them. At the same time, those of us living here can get to know the applicant and thus assist in making a decision about their acceptance.
After the applicant has left, staff, mature students and students may attend an optional meeting to offer observations about the applicant. The meeting is confidential and comments there are not to be repeated outside of the meeting. The Co-Principals and in some cases the Heads of Department, make the final decision about the applicant based on all the information they have received.
The final decision is taken at the end of the term in which the applicant came for a prospective week.
Mature students arrive to begin the eleven month programme in mid-August, ahead of student arrivals so as to allow space to settle in and meet the staff.
