Who Are Mature Students?
For the purpose of this page, the definition of "mature student" can only be determined by YOU! This definition is not solely based on age - it includes life experiences, personality and mindset. For example, you may define yourself as a mature student if you:
- have no previous post-secondary experience
- had a large gap between your educational pursuits
- have past career/working experience and/or are seeking a new career
- you are working while studying
- are a part-time student
- have family responsibilities and/or care for dependents

Send us your videos!
We are currently preparing resources and programming for our incoming mature students, and we would like to invite you to create a video of yourself sharing your experience at Lakehead as a mature student. The videos you and others students create will be edited together to be viewed by new mature students, many of whom may have the same anxieties and challenges you had or have. The video we create will be similar to this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAr450sduTo If you are interested in helping other students like yourself feel welcome and supported at Lakehead, please reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
