Mentoring Centre

Student mentors posing proudly outside with their winter gear

Mentors are students from the Faculty of Science who are trained to help you with your transition to university and reach your academic goals at any stage of your undergraduate degree. With their support, you will acquire efficient learning strategies, learn to mobilize the resources at your disposal and develop time and stress-management as well as autonomy.

They offer personalized one-on-one meetings at the Mentoring Centre, study groups for specific courses and skills development workshops to help you improve your academic performance.

The mentors have also been trained in mental health and are aware of the resources available for you.

The mentors can help you:

  • Acquire learning strategies and efficient study techniques
  • Reinforce your personal motivation
  • Improve your academic success
  • Set academic goals
  • Prepare a study plan for your exams
  • Learn to use time-management and stress-management tools

Study Groups

Need some extra help with your Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics or Physics course?

Student Academic Success Services (SASS), in collaboration with the Faculty of Science, is offering free study groups for students registered in the above-mentioned courses. 

These study groups will closely reflect the material learned in class each week and will give you an opportunity to work through problems that resemble evaluations and assignments.
