Summer Bridge

What is the Summer Bridge Program?

Want to get a headstart on your University of Regina program? Take English 100 alongside Summer Bridge support programming this summer! The Summer Bridge Program is an on-campus* experience, intended for high school students who have been admitted to the University of Regina for the Fall 2024 semester.

What does the program include?

  • Summer Bridge Programming - our programming helps you to develop academic skills and prepare for many parts of university life, not just the English 100 course. Tentative topics include: academic writing, academic integrity, academic communication, university expectations and policies, note taking, exam preparation, time management, study plans, procrastination, stress management, and more.
  • English 100 - accepted for 3.0 hours of credit towards all the U of R programs.
  • Social Activities - to help you meet other students and learn more about the university!
  • Guest Presentations - to learn more about the U of R and all of its services
  • Tutoring - although students are expected to complete homework and assignments outside of the daily programming, students are also provided homework time with the assistance of our writing tutors. Additionally, tutors are available for one-on-one appointment booking if needed.

*This program is offered on the Regina campus
