FOR ALL STUDENTS
Free group workshops are offered in the fall and winter terms on a variety of key topics. These workshops are designed with undergraduate students in mind, but all students, both undergraduate and graduate, from all faculties and programs, are welcome to attend. Workshops are drop-in, but please come early to secure a seat. If there is a workshop you cannot attend but would like to, please email the Academic Skills Outreach Coordinator.
The Workshop Schedule is posted by early September and early January. Our schedule includes topics like memory skills, distraction-free work spaces, time management, procrastination, drafting an exam study schedule, quantitative problem-solving in math and science, writing an essay or multiple-choice exam, and much more.

“How to study for…”: First-Year Course-Specific Workshops
These workshops do not cover course content. Instead, they give first-year students the opportunity to learn from upper-year students called Peer Learning Assistants who have taken these courses in the past. You will learn effective ways to prepare for that course’s particular exam type.
Check our workshop schedule in early November or March to see if we are offering a course-specific exam prep workshop in your course topic.
