Services For Students
Learning Skills Workshops
The Academic Skills Centre offers a variety of workshops throughout the year, including the Success Series in the fall semester. These workshops cover some of the most important learning skills for university success and are repeated throughout the week to accommodate various schedules. Students who are unable to attend a session are encouraged to make an individual appointment to review the workshop information.
All Brandon University students are welcome to make appointments with the Learning Skills specialist for free individualized guidance about how to study more effectively. Feel free to bring your textbooks to discuss more effective reading comprehension strategies, your course outlines to make a study schedule that includes your “real life” or your last test to review exam-writing strategies.
Walk-in Learning Assistance
Walk-in times are posted throughout the year to help students with quick questions or immediate concerns. Senior students are also available as Learning Coaches to help with calculating your GPA and developing skills to study and manage time more effectively, as well as getting better connected with campus resources.
Transition to University
Starting university studies can be stressful. Learn more about university expectations and academic integrity, improve your vocabulary and comprehension, and explore researching and pre-writing strategies.
Textbooks often have interactive tests and valuable study tools such as flashcards and chapter summaries.
