Academic & Language Support Workshops

Do you need help adjusting to Canadian teaching, and learning styles? Confused by seminar structures, when to talk to a professor, or the past perfect progressive? Sign-up for our series of workshops or drop in and meet with one of our support specialists for additional guidance.

The workshops will normally take place Monday through Friday. Registration in advance is required. These workshops will run throughout the year (September to August) and will be updated regularly on this page as they are developed. They are offered at no cost for international students.

We require a minimum of 5 students registered in order to run a workshop, and a maximum of 20 students. We maintain an ongoing waitlist and will reach out to you if a spot becomes available in a workshop which you have been placed on the waitlist for. It is crucial that you check your Brock e-mail regularly for updates from us.

These workshops focus on two different areas:

  • Language support: workshops in this area will cover a variety of topics related to the improvement of academic reading, writing, speaking, listening and English grammar
  • Academic skills support: workshops in this area will cover a variety of topics related to the development of academic skills necessary in order to succeed in the Canadian university context
