Academic Support Programs
The Counselling Centre offers a number of services to help students who are encountering difficulties with academic coursework at Memorial. The services vary from interactive drop-in clinics, to our three-credit hour course in learning skills.
- Beginning early in each semester, study skills clinics are available to help you make your academic work at Memorial more effective and rewarding. These drop-in sessions provide an opportunity for you to discuss your concerns with a psychologist and develop helpful strategies to meet your academic needs. In the past, students have worked on reading and study skills, time management, oral presentations, organizing knowledge for writing term papers and essays, and test anxiety. Following the intake meeting, students may be registered in an online "Academic Skills Portfolio" page in D2L for further work and follow-up. These sessions are free of charge to registered Memorial students.
- UCC2020: Cognitive and Affective Learning Strategies, is a three-credit course in study skills. Students must register for UCC2020 through Memorial Self-Service.
