Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Admission to Laurier's Bachelor of Education program is based on two components; academic standing and an experience profile. The experience profile form is completed and submitted online in your LORIS account, which stands for Laurier's Online Registration and Information System.

You must submit your completed experience profile before the posted deadline. We cannot guarantee that your application will be considered if you submit the experience profile late. 

Your experience profile is reviewed if you meet the minimum academic requirements for admission. Experience profile scores are not disclosed to applicants.

Letters of reference are not required.

How to Submit

The experience profile is used as admission criteria. You will find a link to the experience profile in your LORIS account.

To access the form, log in to your LORIS account.

  1. Select the "Admissions" tab.
  2. Select "Display Admissions Applications."
  3. Select the link under "Admission Term" to view your "Application Status."
  4. Review your "Application Status" for your list of required documents. You will see a link to submit your experience profile form.

Note: It is recommended that you save your responses in a word document before inputting them into the Experience Profile form.

Experience Profile Overview

In your experience profile, you are asked to briefly describe three different experiences in you have instructed others, preferably in kindergarten through grade 6 for Primary/Junior applicants or grades 4-10 for Junior/Intermediate applicants. Experiences, where you interacted with children and youth in a non-instructional capacity, can also be included. Your experiences should be clearly distinct from each other. You are strongly encouraged to describe the diversity of backgrounds or learning characteristics of the children and youth with whom you have interacted with in these experiences.

In the second section of the experience profile, you can elaborate on your relevant educational experiences or additional interactions with children and youth. These experiences should be current and should not duplicate information from the three experiences in the first section.

There is limited character space for each response, so please review the character count if you experience problems submitting.

Format

There are two sections on the experience profile. The following information is based on the experience profile for fall 2020 admissions.

There is a 570-character limit for both Part A and Part B.

Part A

Describe, in order of importance, three experiences (paid or volunteer) you have had that would be useful or valuable to you as a future teacher. Focus on those experiences, if any, in which you worked with children or youth in teaching or facilitating roles.

Note: At least one of the experiences must be recent (within the last year). You will be asked to supply the duration of the experiences, the age of children you worked with and the approximate number of hours spent at each experience.

Part B

Describe any additional information you believe might help support your application. Appropriate information might include certificates, awards or qualifications not described elsewhere in your application. Achievements should be from your Grade 12 year or later.
