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.

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: We recommend that you write and save your Experience Profile responses in a Word document and then cut and paste your responses into the Experience Profile form on LORIS.

Experience Profile Overview

In your experience profile, we invite you to briefly describe three different teaching/instructional experiences, preferably in kindergarten through grade 6 contexts for Primary/Junior applicants or in grades 4 to 10 contexts for Junior/Intermediate applicants. You may also include experiences where you interacted with children and youth in a non-instructional capacity. Your experiences should be clearly distinct from each other. We encourage you to consider your teaching experiences through the lens of equity, diversity, inclusion, and Indigeneity.

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. 

Format

The experience profile consists of two sections. Each response is limited to 570 characters. If the Experience Profile form does not submit when you click on the “submit” button, please review the character count of your responses to ensure they adhere to the character limitations.

The following information is based on the experience profile for fall 2020 admissions.

There is a 570-character limit for Part A and a 570-character limit for 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 with whom you worked and the approximate number of hours spent at each experience.

Part B

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