Health Ready modules

Later in July, you'll gain access to your Health Ready modules through LEARN, the University of Waterloo's online learning management system. This is where many of your instructors will organize course materials, activities and assessments.

As part of Waterloo Ready, we've created modules to help you prepare for September. They will help build your skills and learn about resources available to you as a Waterloo Warrior. We encourage you to work through them at your own pace throughout the months of July and August to familiarize yourself with everything you need to know by September.

  • Module 1: Getting Ready: Welcome to the University of Waterloo
  • Module 2: Classroom Ready: Preparing yourself for learning in university
  • Module 3: Faculty Ready: Academic preparedness in Health
  • Module 4: Campus Ready: Campus services and resources to support your first term

We'll send an email with the information needed to access these modules following the Welcome to Health Live Session.
