all University main web pages. Students can take a virtual University
tour, research admission requirements, see a full academic calendar of course
listings, find out about residence, and have a link to contact the University

Information is current and organized. Students enter the program and
create their own account to research and save all information. You can
search by Programs or Universities and compare information on the screen.
Admission requirements for each program are stated. Students can organize
their program choices in order of preference, print out the information and
then proceed to the application website. More research can be done
on the main application website but your research begins here.
As students are
making post-secondary decisions, they have the opportunity to attend speaker
sessions where a
representative from the institution comes to North to meet and discuss program
information and answer questions. This is a very informative and useful tool in
the research process.
A schedule of
speakers is made available to students in early September, with sessions taking
place right through to mid November. Students should sign up for
these sessions in guidance. Please check with your teachers for
permission to attend.
For a full view
of all scheduled speaking dates, students should pick up the handout Beyond
North. This important handout is in the Career Room as are the sign up
lists for all speakers.
Bus trips to
universities may be run in conjunction with other Barrie high schools during
October/November. Schedule to be announced late September.
