University Preparation (Gr. 12)

Interested for Fall 2024?  Email us, and we will send you more information soon!

We have tailored our University Preparation workshop to address the issues of most interest to university-bound students in Grade 12:  choosing a university, finding and applying for scholarships (and other funding), 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).

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 and the US:

  • University of Toronto
  • Queen’s University
  • Waterloo University
  • McGill University
  • University of Guelph
  • Western University
  • McMaster University
  • University of Michigan
  • University of Ottawa
  • York University
  • University of British Columbia
  • Wilfrid Laurier University
  • University of Windsor

“The Uni Prep course at Brain Power was extremely useful as it gave insight into strategies for supplemental essays, tips for interviews, scholarship attainment, as well as advice for success in first year in university. I think many students go into university applications with a confused mindset and oftentimes they fall into the trap of clichéd writing. The program at Brain Power, however, makes sure to keep students on the right track; it has a very practical structure and there are many examples and many chances to practice with interview questions. The teachers were also super available to answer any questions outside of class hours all year long! I truly believe the program changed my perspective on applications! I highly recommend it! And… I got into my programs of choice – even the Bioengineering program at the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science at UCLA! I am beyond ecstatic!” —Amy Li, Class of 2021
