Student Success Workshops and Learning Skills Consultations are two of the ways that we provide learning assistance to all University of Regina students.

Student Success Workshops

Check out the workshop schedule at the UR Guarantee's calendar of events.

Attend interactive, 50-minute workshops designed to help you become a better student.  Topics include note taking and effective reading, exam preparation, time management, academic writing, learning styles and more.

Find out more about student success workshops and see the schedule.

We also have online workshops available so you can work at your own pace from anywhere!

Do you need help figuring out UR Courses, UR Self-Service, or do you want to brush up on Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint?  Visit one of our Peer Advisors (located at RC 229) for assistance.  Their weekly schedule is posted just outside the door - this is a drop in service, so no appointment is required.

One-on-One Learning Skills Consultations

Meet with a peer advisor or learning skills advisor to develop personalized strategies to effectively handle the demands of your semester and get better grades.

University of Regina Learning Assistance Programs Mission Statement and Learning Outcomes

Our mission is to support and enhance the educational mission of the University of Regina by providing
accessible, student focused services which contribute to the success of students as they strive to achieve their personal, academic and professional goals.  Through the development of partnerships with students, faculty and academic and service units, our Learning Assistance Programs aim to facilitate the successful transition of students into the post-secondary learning environment, assist students to develop the self-discipline and self-awareness required to become independent learners and critical thinkers, enhance opportunities for student learning and development through the provision of innovative programs and services, and ensure that students have access to resources that will aid them in achieving academic success.  Our programs serve diverse student needs and are available to new and current students in all undergraduate programs of studies at the University of Regina.

  • Learn to assess, articulate and acknowledge their personal skills, abilities and areas requiring development
