This chapter provides some final commentary on the study as a whole including the diversity of the men and their stories. The connections to mature women students’ access and experience of university study are discussed and summarised. The challenges that mature-age male students encountered are re-visited and the successes, as reported by the men, also. In the final part of the chapter, a number of recommendations are made in line with findings from the study. These include fostering social networks and communication with and between mature-age students; teaching and learning approaches, curricula and resources; proactive support services and meaningful contact with academic staff.
