Workshops and short courses on study skills

Workshops and short courses can help you improve your learning and academic skills, including:

Strategies for Success

Strategies for Success is a series of special multi-day workshops offered as part of orientation each semester. These workshops help clarify what to expect at university then give you strategies to succeed while you're here. Strategies for Success can help improve your results, boost your confidence and is a great way to meet new people.

We tailor Strategies for Success for students in each faculty. This helps you get information that's most relevant to your course.

For students in each faculty, we offer two versions of Strategies for Success:

  • a 5-day program that's suitable for local and international students
  • a 4-day program that focuses on the needs of international students

Stay tuned for the dates and outlines of programs that will be taught in February, 2018.

Study Smarter Workshops

Come to our one-hour workshops to further strengthen your assignment writing, reading, referencing, oral presentation, time management and exam preparation skills.

All the workshops are faculty-specific and divided into two streams: 'Learning and Academic Skills' and 'Oral and written communication skills'. You'll get a Participation Award for attending four or more workshops in any stream. So, you can get two awards! Check the full program for details.
