Student Learning Commons: Types of consultations available to students

The Student Learning Commons offers free one-on-one consultations at Burnaby, Surrey, and Vancouver to SFU students taking credit courses.

SLC consultations are available both on-campus and virtually, on the WCO platform. Both on-campus and virtual consultations are one-on-one and peer-to-peer with a focus on empowering students' confidence in their own academic work. 

Learning consultations

Enhance strategies such as time management, exam preparation, note-taking, and presentation skills.

Writing consultations

Develop and improve strategies and skills for more effective academic writing, including cover letters and résumés for Co-op or other positions related to your academic program.

For assistance with job-related cover letters and résumés, consult SFU Career Services or the Career Management Centre.

Note: SLC staff and peer educators do not proofread or edit your work but do help you develop your own effective proofreading and editing strategies.
