Enhanced support available for international students during exam season

Brock International Services is extending its programming to support international students linguistically and academically prior to and during final exams.

In an effort to maximize student success, workshops, individual appointments, study groups and drop-in services will be available throughout March and April.

Free workshops will be held focusing on a variety of relevant skills for final exams, including academic writing, research and citation, group work, delivering presentations, speaking, planning and preparing assignments and exams, and critical thinking and reading.

Registration is required, as space is limited and can be done online through the Brock International website.

International students also have access to drop-in service Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Scotiabank Atrium of the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex.

Drop-in sessions average about 20 minutes in length and are run by qualified academic tutors that offer one-on-one academic language support in a variety of subjects such as grammar, writing and critical thinking.

Individual, specialized appointments are also available for students that need additional support, with support specialists Vander Tavares (vtavares@brocku.ca) and Tolkin Yunusov (tyunusov@brocku.ca).

The International Centre will have quiet study spaces available for all Brock students during exam season, which begins April 12. Both Tavares and Yunusov will be available to host exam study group sessions upon request.

More information on upcoming workshops is available on the Brock International website.
