International students – are you thinking about exam results?

Are you looking over your results and wishing you had done better? It can feel overwhelming to do your assignments or exams. It can also be discouraging to receive feedback and marks that are not what you’re used to. 

Remember that it takes time to learn how things work in a different academic environment. Using a second language can also put more stress on you and affect your performance.

The good news is you’re not alone, and there is support here at UC for you.

The Academic Skills Centre is located on the third floor of the Puaka-James Hight Library. It offers several resources to help you improve your academic results, including online resources.

If you need assistance with writing, check out the four-part Introduction to Essay Writing course. You can also book a consultation with a Learning Advisor to review your writing one on one.

If you want to practice your speaking and listening skills, come along to the Speaking and Listening for English Language Learners workshops

For assistance dealing with cultural adjustment and transition, anxiety, worry, or stress, staff at the Student Care and UC Health Centre provide wonderful support.

It’s ok to ask for help, it’s part of being a successful student.
