University Preparation

November 9 – December 7, 2019
Saturdays 4:45-6:45

We have tailored our five-lesson University Applications workshop to address the issues of most interest to university-bound students (in Ontario):  choosing a university, finding and applying for scholarships (and other funding), navigating the Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC), writing special application essays, presenting oneself well in interviews and recorded applications, and some of the most common concerns about first year (e.g. time management, dealing with professors and teaching assistants, living in residence). Though the schedule is subject to change, the tentative breakdown of material over the five lessons is as follows:

  1. Choosing a University, Doing Your Research, OUAC, Scholarships
  2. Scholarships (continued), Writing Special Application Essays
  3. Writing Special Application Essays (continued)
  4. Interviews (and Recorded Applications)
  5. First-Year Tips (Time Management, Professors & Teaching Assistants, etc.)

Our recent students have received multiple admissions offers to programs in the Arts and Fine Arts and the Sciences and Applied Sciences—including Biology, Biomedical Science, Health Science, Kinesiology, Life Science, Computer Science, and Engineering—from prestigious universities cross Canada:
