We want to learn how we can improve the Bootcamp program for future prospective students. Whether you participated in the Bootcamp or not, your responses are vital to us as we work to create improved resources for other first year international Engineering students like you!

The study will take approximately 1 hour to complete. If selected, we will confirm the time of your session with you. After attending and participating in the consult, $15 will be added to your WatCard.

We will be facilitating both virtual and in-person consults, please complete the registration form to indicate your availability in January 2023. In-person consultations will be held in the Tatham Centre. If you are selected, we will send confirmation emails with more details.
