Barbed comment

October 6, 1995

Your editorial which, broadly, comes down on the side of more mature students in higher education (THES, September 29) should have gone further.

In my view no male students should be admitted for a first degree before they have grown a full beard.

This will not need to be a requirement for female students since they mature faster than men.
