Many students feel the pressure to pursue post-secondary education but often have no idea where to start. Counsellors may find keeping track of deadlines and details for post-secondary institutions equally overwhelming. The good news is that planning for post-secondary education and applying to BC public universities, colleges and institutes has improved due to online resources such as the BC government-funded website, EducationPlannerBC.ca.
In our workshop, attendees will be able to see how the website is a great one-stop-shop tool for students to plan, prepare and apply for post-secondary education in BC. We will help you navigate our website and find resources like financial assistance and scholarship information, career exploration tools, program databases to explore programs offered by colleges, institutions and universities in BC; and we also will show you BC’s central application system for admissions to post-secondary.
