Nervous about starting college or university in the fall? Unsure of what to expect? Not sure you have the necessary skills to be successful?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, we have the program for you!

Cambrian College’s Summer Tune-Up sessions will prepare you in the areas of English, math, and health sciences, while giving you tips and tricks to succeed in your chosen field of study.

All sessions are FREE and open to anyone attending a postsecondary school in the fall (not just exclusive to Cambrian students).

  • Learn what to expect when you attend college or university
  • Learn and apply valuable study, time management, and organizational skills
  • Learn how to research and use college/university library resources

You can choose to take one, two, or all three subject-related courses throughout the summer. You will meet new friends, make connections with faculty members, and take away the skills to be successful!

Course descriptions:

  • English - Refresher on essay writing, APA formatting, research skills, utilizing the school library, what makes a great piece of writing.
