Mature Applicants

In seeking to admit the best and brightest students, the University recognizes evidence of academic potential in a range of achievements and life experiences. It recognizes that those who have achieved excellence, pursued interests and activities with dedication, determination and discipline, or overcome significant hardships may have the intellectual maturity required to contribute to and benefit from degree and diploma studies at the University.

Individuals who see themselves in the above statement and who have been outside of full-time formal education for at least four years are encouraged to submit an application and supporting documents for consideration.

The University reserves the right to determine whether or not an applicant can be classified as mature. Applicants to programs with pre-requisite subjects are normally required to complete these prior to admission to the program.
