Study Support

Managing your academic work at university can be an enormous challenge. In order to reach your academic potential and get the maximum benefit from your studies, it is important for you to master the skill of studying early in your academic career. There are a number of workshops and services available on campus, which can help develop your personal study strategies and provide you with great opportunities to learn from and with others.

UBC Counselling Services offers a number of study skills workshops that may provide you with the skills needed to increase your grades, reduce your study time, and more importantly reduce your stress level.

If you are looking for tutoring help, the Alma Mater Society (AMS) provides free drop-in tutoring services to students registered in the first-year Math, Chemistry, Physics, French and English/Writing. Tutoring for some second year courses is available for a fee.

The UBCLearning Commons in the Main Library also hosts a series of study skills workshops that may prove valuable to you.
