Our academic enrichment aims to accelerate your  learning,  help you adjust to tertiary studies and  provide support to help you excel.

Make the most of the college network with our mentoring program. This program pairs undergraduate students with alumni and graduate residents to assist with relationship-building and developing communication skills.

Academic seminars are also held approximately once per month. Members of the graduate student community can present on their area of study or research.
