Further Education Workshops

Thinking about further education and wondering what types of programs are out there? The following workshops are designed to provide you with the information you need to make further education choices.

SUMMER 2014: Due to lack of demand, Further Education workshops will not be offered during the summer term (starting May 1, 2014). If you have questions about applying to a post-graduate program (e.g. grad school, law school, teachers college, post-grad diploma or certificate) you are welcome to register for a 30 minute individual Post Grad Application Support session appointment which are offered throughout the year.

Registration on the Career Centre's online system is required for all workshops (you must sign up for an account on the system before you will be able to register for any workshops).
