About the OISE Student Success Centre
NOTE: The OISE Student Success Centre is only offering online appointments until further notice.
The OISE Student Success Centre (OSSC) is an academic skills and support centre that offers OISE graduate students the opportunity to book one-on-one appointments with an OSSC advisor to improve their abilities in a wide-range of areas. Our advisors have a range of professional and academic experience. Students are encouraged to consult the advisor profiles as a guide when booking appointments for a specific subject.
Advisors at the centre will be able to provide support to students in the following areas:
- Academic Writing
- French (select advisors)
- English Language Development
- Academic Writing Group (New)
- Literature Review
- Presentation Skills
- Resume and Cover Letters
- Mock Interviews
- Teacher Skills Development
- Indigenous Learning (New)
We do not provide academic support for Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) grant and Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS) scholarship applications. Please inquire with your department about workshops and resources on these award competitions.
We do not provide editing or proofreading services; instead, we work with students to give feedback and work together through the writing process to develop your skills long-term.
