A community approach to learning
Preparing for your first year of university can be stressful. Choosing the right courses, fitting them into a schedule that works – it's a lot. And the thought of being alone in a crowd of strangers in an unfamiliar place can be overwhelming. Avoid the stress with Q'ushin'tul (Walking Together) and get ready for a successful university career.
What is Q’ushin’tul (Walking Together)?
With Q'ushin'tul you get a bundle of first-year university courses to take at the Cowichan campus. The bundle includes three courses in the Fall Semester and three in the Spring.
Courses that connect
These courses meet the first-year requirements for many programs. They cover a broad range of study areas and give you a solid foundation to build on. You can add courses to your schedule if you want, but you don't have to. The three courses meet the minimum for full-time student status.
You'll take those courses with the same group of peers in both semesters. You'll also have opportunities to connect with other Q'ushin'tul students outside the classroom.
You and the other Q'ushin'tul (Walking Together) students will share the first-year journey. Along the way you can form study groups, support each other and become a community.
