School Placement

School Placement

To achieve one’s educational goals, having a plan is essential.

The university application process can be daunting for many students. There are endless questions:

How early should I begin preparing to apply?
Which schools and programs are suitable for my academic profile?
University, College, or Apprenticeship and what are the benefits and drawbacks of each option?
Do I apply in Canada or the US?
Is it better to apply for early acceptance or wait until regular deadlines for admissions?
Is any additional testing required?
Will athletic achievements be taken under consideration?
How do I impress the admission officers with your supplemental written task?
How to prepare a portfolio if my program requires one?
Which grades will universities use as basis for applicant consideration?
How do I track the progress of my application?
How do I pay for school and board once I am accepted?

And this is just scratching the surface.

In Canada, university acceptances are based on relatively simple criteria despite some minor variations from program to program. Universities want to ensure you meet all of the prerequisites of your program of choice, compare your six top grades of 4U/M level courses against other applicants, and, in certain occasions, review your written supplemental, resume or portfolio. But despite these fairly straightforward requirements, the university application process is far from easy to navigate.

Not only can the application process be confusing, one must begin their preparations early. For example, it is useful to know which courses to take and which to avoid in your upper years of secondary school. You must research programs well in advance of applying to ensure you sign up for all the correct prerequisites for admission. Exploring internships, co-op opportunities and community service options can equip a student with valuable real-world experience that will impress admission officers.

Here at Arcanum, we will be with you every step of the way—from reviewing your post-secondary options, helping you navigate the application portals (OUAC & OCAS), and assisting you in planning and revising your written supplementary submissions.

If the program of your choice requires a portfolio, we will connect you with an instructor who will guide you in building a professional body of work that captures your unique talents while also adhering to the submission requirements.

Some programs conduct interviews with applicants, whether in person or over a video chat. Our academic councilors will work closely with you to know which questions to anticipate and how to respond to them in a manner that will impress the admission officers.

Don’t leave your future career to chance – leave it to professionals.
