Based on the feedback we’ve received from students, faculty, and staff, we felt that providing a Study Week in each semester gives students their best chance to succeed in and out of the classroom. It allows students time to catch up on assignments, study or rest and unwind. The 7-1-7 semester schedule also aligns us with the majority of other Ontario post-secondary institutions.
The majority of Cambrian programs will align with the 7-1-7 semester. Some programs that are shorter in length, such as Apprenticeship or the English for Academic Purposes (EAPP) program will continue with their current semester layout. Some other non-postsecondary programs like Academic Upgrading will also be excluded. Additional information will be directly provided to students in these programs.
No, it will not align with Thanskgiving. The College is adopting a 7-1-7 model where Study Week will consistently occur after the first seven weeks of class. It will then be followed by another 7 weeks of class time.
Yes, all campuses and services will be open during Study Week. Each program area will be developing schedules for their labs should students be interested in using Study Week to reinforce their learning. These schedules will be shared via myCambrian.
Even though there are no formal classes, faculty will be available during Study Week to provide academic support. You should contact your faculty directly about setting up an appointment if you would like to meet with them during Study Week.
Your professor and program coordinator will work to ensure there is sufficient time to cover all course materials and assignments within the semester. Please contact your professor for any specific questions.
During Study Week, no course assignments will be due and no tests or exams will take place. However, in cases where a professor has provided prior approval, some students may be accessing the services of our Glenn Crombie Centre or the Test Centre in order to complete rescheduled tests and assignments. Discuss specific course-related questions with your professor.
