The University of Toronto considers applicants based on their academic background, regardless of their age. If you do not meet the published admission requirements for your target academic program, and if you have not previously attempted university-level studies, you may become eligible for admission to some academic programs through either an Academic Bridging Program or the Transitional Year Program. George campus, as well as the Bridging Pathway offered at U of T Mississauga, provide mature students who do not meet U of T admission requirements with the opportunity to qualify for degree studies in the humanities and social sciences on any of the three campuses. These programs are available to Canadian citizens, permanent residents or protected persons convention refugees. The Transitional Year Programme is designed for those who were unable to finish high school due to financial problems, family difficulties or other circumstances beyond their control.
Guidance for mature students | University of Oxford
We have around mature undergraduates studying for their first degree at Cambridge, many of whom are in their 20s. At Cambridge, all undergraduate students are a member of one of our 29 undergraduate Colleges. This is a great support for anyone returning to education. Mature students who make an open application are allocated to one of the mature-student Colleges. The role of the Colleges and College profiles are detailed in our Colleges section, along with advice on things to consider when choosing a College. The personal teaching and support available within the Cambridge Colleges is the most distinctive feature of the collegiate system.
Guidance for mature students
Mature students are a valued part of our community, making up around 15 per cent of our undergraduate population. As a mature applicant, you are expected to meet our normal entry requirements unless you also meet our definition of an adult returner - someone who has had a continuous gap of at least three years in their formal education, and who has not already gained a degree. More information on entry requirements for adult returners is available on our mature students website and our College pages. Entry requirements for adult returners.
