University applications and skills

When you’re in Grade 11 or 12, preparing for university takes on a new importance in your life. Whether it’s choosing a major, writing university applications or getting ready for first year, it can feel like you have a lot to do—and not a lot of time to do it.

The good news is there are skills and strategies you can learn and use today to get into your top-choice university, and succeed once you’re there. We have courses designed to do just that.

I think the course covered exactly what a student would need to know to apply for university. I appreciated how it covered everything from the basics, to how to write an application and how to write concisely.
