PHILIPSBURG — Leaving home to pursue higher education can be an intimidating experience for those looking to further their studies. Those who arrive equipped with an understanding of how the college/university system works are better prepared for the challenges that lay ahead. The Student Support Services Division (SSSD) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Affairs aspires to educate both parents and students alike about the academic opportunities available in Canada.
We will be conducting a workshop entitled College or University 101: “ The Canadian System”. It will be held on February 28th, 2017 at the SSSD’s office from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Spaces are limited, therefore any persons interested in attending are urged to contact SSSD’s office at 54-31235 to reserve a spot.
The workshop will be interactive and free. It is open to students in their last two years of secondary school or recent graduates and their parents who are interested in studying in Canada.
