Educational Counselling

Educational Counselling

Educational counselling is a free service which allows you to discuss your career and educational goals with a counsellor. Together, you and your counsellor will build an educational plan to put you on a path to success. Counsellors can provide referrals to short-term or long-term training programs, mentorship opportunities, English classes, and more! They can also answer questions about student financing, professional licensing requirements, and language testing.

Educational counselling can be done in person, over the phone, or online. Appointments typically take 30-60 minutes; your appointment can take place immediately after a language test or can be booked for a later date.
