A student watching the Grade 10 Family Night event at the University of Waterloo.

If you're in Grade 10 and planning to attend university, you and your parents are invited to this online event to learn what you can do now to prepare.

Our speakers will provide an overview of university and share tips on how to choose a program that's right for you. The information will be helpful regardless of which universities or programs interest you and won't focus on Waterloo's faculties and academic programs.
