Welcome to the Student Success Centre! 

We provide professional support to help students strengthen their academic skills and achieve their academic goals – and want all students to succeed at university!

If you have questions about how to tackle a paper, report, or exam, how to study or take notes, how to present calmly and effectively, how to plan your term, or manage a course project, thesis, or dissertation, we’re here to help! We meet with students one-on-one in individual appointments, and run group workshops throughout the year. We also offer customized services both on and off campus. Whatever your program or situation, we can help.

We work with pre-university, undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students, international students, parents, and university instructors and advisors to maximize students’ success at all levels of achievement and study.
