Life Skills

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance as a graduate student can be difficult task. SKILLSETS offers workshops and events that will help you build strategies to manage the heavy workload that comes with graduate school and attain personal goals. We work closely with our partners at McGill’s Counselling Services and the Post-Graduate Students Society.
