With maturity comes experience.
With experience comes success.
Our goal is to help you translate that life experience into academic success. Whether you are pursuing university or college studies for the first time or returning to complete your degree or diploma we are here to support you along the way.
TAAC has years of experience supporting students in their 20s through to their 70s.
Here are few examples of the mature student groups we have experience with:
- military personnel looking to advance their career
- single or divorced parents looking for a new career
- mature students who've always wanted to go back and finish what they started
- civil servants who require higher education for growth in their field
- small business owners and entrepreneurs
- established professionals who never required a degree at the time but wish to pursue one now
- politicians and staffers
Typical questions and comments that mature students share with us:
- It has been so many years since I've been in school. I'm really nervous about sitting in a class full of teens and 20 year olds. What should I expect?
- Do you think my life experience will really translate into academic success?
- My high school record is a little shaky. Is there anything I can do to get my feet wet first?
- How will the school assess my previous academic record for admission purposes?
- What do you recommend I do to help me secure good grades? It has been so long since I sat in a classroom.
- I completed a community college diploma years ago and now I'm looking to pursue a degree. What are the major differences between the two systems?
- I started a degree/diploma many years ago and in my wisdom as a youth I didn't do very well. What should I do now that I want to complete my degree/diploma? Is it too late? Have I done irreparable damage?
- My long term goal is professional studies (for example social work, law school) or even graduate school. What do I need to do to set myself up for success?
- I'm a little concerned about the technology used today. What can I do to bring myself up to speed? Do I need a laptop for my lectures?
