Building Your Academic Tookit Event - Join advisers from the Academic Advising Centre to learn about resources and strategies for success in your first year at UVic - including a walkthrough of how to read a course syllabus, charting out a 'typical' week and how and where to seek support, both proactively and if you run in to challenges.
To register for this event, please sign up online.

Take time to plan your degree. Make decisions that fit you and your goals. Connect with an Academic Adviser when you have specific questions, as well as when you need someone to talk to about your options. Depending on your question, you may want to meet with an Academic Adviser in the Academic Advising Centre (AAC) for Humanities, Science and Social Sciences or a faculty member in your academic program who has responsibility for Academic Unit Advising (AUA).
