Mature Students

Since 2010 mature students as an academic demographic have been recognized as a growing cohort of students within the province. Despite this recognition, mature students continue to face ongoing challenges. From financial barriers, to a lack of adequate support services, mature students feel underrepresented and often overlooked. Additionally, large portions of marginalized groups, such as Indigenous Students, attending post-secondary studies are often mature students. As a post-secondary sector that strives to provide high quality education to all of our students, we must ensure that mature students and adult learners are effectively supported throughout their academic studies.
