Got exams this Summer? The Learning Centre is here to help!


It’s that time again! Final exams are upon us, and Douglas College students are gearing up for some serious study time. Thankfully, the Learning Centre is hosting another Exam Jam to help students ace their finals. Since it’s the Summer, the Learning Centre has reduced their regular programming to focus on the essentials – one-on-one peer tutoring appointments and study group sessions.

How Exam Jam can help you



Peer Tutoring: Looking for test-taking strategies or help reviewing your course material? The New Westminster Learning Centre will be open for business during our regular summer hours on August 7, 8, 11, 12 and 13, and our Coquitlam location will be open on August 12 and 13. We encourage students to book free 25-minute tutoring appointments for study skills, writing, computer skills or course content. Students can reserve a session by booking online at douglascollege.ca/learningcentre.

Study Groups: Often, two heads are better than one. And multiple brains are even better! The Learning Centre is holding study groups at the New Westminster campus for BIOL 1103, BIOL 1109, BIOL 1203, CSIS 1175, PSYC 2300, CHEM 1104, CHEM 1108, CHEM 1110 and FINC 1231. Study groups will be led by our experienced peer tutors, and students can book a spot online at douglascollege.ca/learningcentre.
