As a UofGH student, you'll have a huge team of people behind you ready to support your success. You'll get to know them and they'll get to know you.

An Academic Advisor is like your High School Guidance Counsellor and every program has one! Need help understanding your program plan or assistance with a course? Talk to your Advisor.

You can also rely on your Academic Advisor for developing an education plan, building vital learning skills, learning about opportunities and resources, and resolving academic issues.

As part of your program, you're going to complete placement hours to get hands-on experience in your field before you graduate.

Your Field Placement Coordinator supports you through your placement and ensures you meet your placement goals.
