What is the University Seminar course?

  • The University Seminar course (UNIV 1016) is a small, discussion-based course that provides a great introduction to basic academic skills, such as writing, research, citations, effective study skills and learning strategies, which will be useful to  students no matter their field of study.
  • It will help students develop the skills and confidence needed to be successful at university before the rest of their courses begin.
  • Using a multi-disciplinary approach, students will discuss, research and exchange perspectives on a real-world, and current topic. Learn how to form arguments, support them with facts, learn to communicate effectively, and share differences of opinion in constructive ways and more.
  • Small class size (capped at 30 students) provides students with a supportive, interactive and engaging learning environment. Great opportunity to interact with classmates and the instructor.

Cost

  • This course will have no additional tuition associated with it. The tuition you pay for your Fall/Winter academic year will cover the cost of this course.
  • If your registration for fall/winter changes and you no longer enroll at Lakehead, you will be required to pay the tuition for this course (0.5 FCE) based on the program in which you were originally enrolled.


How do I register for UNIV 1016?

  • If you haven’t already done so, you must accept your Offer of Admission first.
  • Registration for this course will be done differently than your normal course registration at Lakehead for the summer offering. You will need to register by submitting the following registration form:   Registration for University Seminar Course (UNIV 1016) | myInfo (lakeheadu.ca)
  • The deadline to register for the course is July 2. Spaces will be limited – you are encouraged to register as early as possible.
