1:1 and Drop-in Appointment

Often the best way to get started in your first year of study is to come into the Centre for an individual consultation. You can consult with one of our strategists about understanding your learning style and making it work for you, developing study plans for upcoming tests/exams, or discussing papers you are currently writing.

Programs Available

The RGASC also offer different programs and workshops throughout the fall and winter terms in a variety of skill building areas.
