Subject: question for students at York & U of T
hello,

I am in my 30s, live in the Toronto area and want to enroll at university next year as a mature student. I haven´t settled on a program but probably the arts and not sciences. The local schools I can choose between for Bachelors of Arts are York & U of T. I am nervous about being the token old man in my classes. I would like to go to a school that has many other mature or returning students so I will not feel out of place on a National Lampoons style campus.

My question for York and U of T students is are there many older students in your classes? I live north of the city and would prefer to go to York because it is closer but not if I would be the only student over 30. Any feedback would be appreciated but especially from other mature students would be great. Thank you!

Also if your school has resources for mature or part time students, please let me know.

Don´t worry there are a few people at York that are >30. You should contact student registars office to find out more benefits about mature students. I remember i had a couple of >30 yr olds in my kinesiology class, and we got along just fine. Don´t be intimidate by your age. There are no age limit for learning. Knowledge is power.

If you´re serious, then I could tell you that one of my classmates was over 50. He´s a lot of grey hair. But he was studied in Atkinson College course. I don´t know whether he´s a degree student or not.
Actually, why do you care about your age if you just want to gain knowledge?

Check the requirements of each school. Go to admissions, and mature students. If you dropped out of high school, you might need to get certain pre-requisites beforehand.

Good Luck!!
