Grade 11 and 12 students and parent attend seminar to learn about university admissions
In this session you will learn about ways to reduce the time searching for schools and preparing university applications. It will be explained how course planning and academic advising processes work alongside interest and career inventories to determine a good fit for a university, a program and a major. Basic requirements will be explained for various majors such as science, arts, business and engineering. There will be limited discussion about preparing for pre-professional programs such as medicine and law. Supplemental applications will be introduced along with examples of these. Parents will learn what documents are required to apply for domestic and international schools and what the timeline is for this.
The differences will be explained between Canadian, American and UK applications. The benefits of the college transfer system will be explained. Differences in working with a high school counsellor, educational consultant and private admission specialist will be explored.
Throughout the session, participants will be able to ask questions and to get assistance in order to help prepare applications for university and college for grade twelve students. Parents with students in younger grades can learn about the changing requirements for university admission and how to assist their children in meeting these changing requirements.
This seminar is designed for parents of grade twelve and eleven students.
