If you’re beginning your undergraduate degree, you can help prepare for what lies ahead next fall by participating in one of U of T’s many intake programs. Many colleges have designed programs specifically for their incoming students. Check with your college registrar to see what might be available. Here’s a listing of some of the college offerings:
- As part of its program for newly admitted students, New College offers a series of workshops on writing, research and navigating courses. Students are also invited to make appointments for individual consultations during the summer. Book appointments online.
- In mid- to late-August, University College students can attend one of six skills sessions as part of its Getting Started Early program. UC also invites its incoming students to bring a sample of high school work for a one-on-one appointment during July or August. Book all group or one-on-one sessions online.
- Victoria College offers a Writing at the University seminar for newly admitted students.
- Woodsworth College offers its new students the Jump Start program, a full-day introduction to getting the most out of the U of T experience (lunch is provided). Register online.
- UTM‘s Head Start program in late August provides a free series of interactive sessions specially designed to help first-year students achieve success. Incoming UTM students can come to as many sessions as they like.
- In the first half of September, Student Life will offer a number of workshops for new students as part of its Kickstart program. Registration begins on the Kickstart site in July.
