YoUR Bridge To Success

Are you looking to enhance your academic skills before you start your fall semester at the University of Regina? Would you like to gain exposure to what life on campus is like? Then the University of Regina Summer Bridge Program (SBP) is for you! The SBP is an opportunity to strengthen academic skills, engage in social activities with other students to form a peer network and get familiarized with the University of Regina and all of its faculties and resources.

We invite all students who are accepted for the upcoming Fall semester, who would like a head start on an introductory university course. This program offers students the opportunity to complete ENGL 100 in a supportive structured environment. Completing this course in advance can help reduce one’s course load in the fall, where one can enroll in four courses rather than five.

In addition to ENGL 100, we also provide skill building workshops, including topics such as reading strategies, note taking, time management, and study skills. Participating in these interactive workshops helps students overcome common challenges that many first year students face. 

This program is a unique 3-week program to meet our great instructors and staff, other new students and benefit from getting a head start on your degree. This program qualifies for Student Loans if needed, to assist in covering tuition, textbooks. Apply now to enroll in the program and receive all the benefits that we offer!

The Basics:

  1. Orientation for the SBP is on July 5, 2021 (will be offered remotely via zoom). It is strongly encouraged that all participants attend. Information that will be covered includes: understanding the different program components, meet your instructors, get a campus tour, syllabus, reading list, and learning specific academic strategies to prepare you for the pre-work required before class starts.

  2. From July 5th - August 3rd, 2021, students are required to complete the 'pre-work' for ENGL 100, which involves completing all of the ENGL 100 readings. 

  3.  For the month of August, students attend daily Summer Bridge Programming and ENGL 100 classes online. Summer Bridge Programming occurs for half of the day with ENGL 100 classes in the other. This programming runs Monday to Friday, from 8:30 AM - 11:15 AM and 12:30 PM - 3:15 PM, for the month of August.
     (The ENGL 100 class and SBP Workshops will be offered through a remote distance learning option. There will not be any face to face classes)

    Components of the program include:
  • Summer Bridge Programming - our programming helps you develop academic skills and prepare for university. It is not specific to ENGL 100 content. 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 U of R programs.

  • Social activities - to help you meet other students and learn more about the university! Due to the remote delivery option, all social activities will be virtual and will not require attendance in person. 

  • Guest presentations - to learn more about the U of R and all 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 writing tutors. Tutors are also available for one-on-one appointment booking. 
  • The option to experience university life in the U of R Residences.
