University Preparation

Are you preparing for university?

Do you need to?

  • improve your marks?
  • earn a prerequisite to enter a specific university program?
  • build your confidence before taking a university credit course?

What are University Prep courses?

The University Preparation courses have been designed in consultation with the faculty of Dalhousie University—to give you a solid foundation in a subject before going to university or, if you are currently in university, to help you get the prerequisite you need for the program you want! University Preparation courses are non-credit. The courses demand regular attendance and homework. Enrolment is limited so register now.
