Academic and Career Wellness

Academic and Career Wellness

Academic and Career wellness are two of eight components found on the Wellness Wheel.

These components describe the ability to achieve enrichment and fulfillment through education and/or work. It involves active learning and skill development to foster improvement and growth, and making academic and career choices that are in line with one’s values, interests, and beliefs to achieve personal satisfaction.

The Career Planning Service (CAPS) assists students in career development and search for permanent, part-time, and summer jobs, as well as internships, by providing workshops, individual advising, a comprehensive job posting service, and an extensive Career Resource Centre.

The Office for Students with Disabilities provides support if you feel that difficulties and impairments are hindering your academic performance while at McGill or if you require assistance with access. 

Academic Advising is another great resource, as advisors offer guidance and help students make informed decisions to take some of the uncertainty out of undergraduate studies. 

If you're looking to reinforce classroom learning and strengthen your academic performance, check out the Tutorial Service. It is a peer tutoring service that matches requests for academic assistance with qualified students selected from a bank of private tutors. 

Finally, Counselling Services offers a variety of Academic Success Workshops aimed at helping you enhance your learning potential.
