U1 Mature Student Program
What is a mature student?

For admission purposes, the University of Manitoba considers a mature student to be 21 years of age or older and missing the regular high school entrance requirements.

U1's Mature Student Program, however, provides support for all students 21 years of age and older, regardless of their admission status. U1 recognizes that mature students often need extra support to achieve their goals when balancing their studies with family, financial obligations, and other personal commitments.

What can University 1 do for mature students?
  • Provide timely, relevant and accurate information during the academic year
  • Provide academic advising (in-person, by phone or email) for assistance with course selection, registration, degree planning, help balancing life and school, developing strong study skills and time management
  • Provide a specialized mature student section of ARTS 1110

    ARTS 1110 is a three credit hour course is designed to help students make a successful transition to university. ARTS 1110 is taught by instructors who are aware of, and sensitive to, the challenges students face as they make their adjustments to a new learning environment. This course helps students to understand the process of learning, to study more efficiently in different disciplines, and to develop effective academic writing and research skills. It is designed to assist students to adjust more quickly through the development of practical skills, regular assignments, and the support of a small group of students in the seminar sections. For students who have been away from the classroom for a period of time, the course is designed to assist in the process of accessing and reactivating previous knowledge, and to create a link between previous knowledge and university study.

    A specific section for students 21 years of age and older will be offered this Fall term. For more information please contact us. See contact information below.
