What is it?

The Graduating Workshop Series provides you with the opportunity to dig deeper into the experience gained through your BSc to identify what’s transferable to the workplace, brush up your résumé & cover letter, practice interview skills, and more.

You can either participate in the entire series, or just register for the workshops you think are most beneficial to your personal and career development. To participate in the series, you must attend Beyond the BSc, plus an additional 3 workshops to receive a certificate at the end. Registration for the series is currently closed, check back in fall for info about the 2017-18 program.

Is it for me?

Any undergrad student in the Faculty of Science can register for the program. This program is timely for students who are about to graduate, however you can register for any of the workshops beneficial to your career and personal development.

There are limited spaces available, so register early! If a workshop is filled up, register on the waitlist. Waitlist registrants are added on a first-come, first-served basis.
