The support you need to succeed
ICM helped me a lot coming from a different educational background. The four hour classes and the relatively small number of students gave me a really good edge as I was able to talk to my professors one on one and ask them questions. Another thing I really loved about ICM was all the cultural events. You would never feel that you’re away from home because you will always be connected. There was also a special kind of comfort level because you are surrounded by people going through the same transition as you and it’s great to have that support from your peers.
Orientation and month of welcome
Orientation month includes workshops, activities and events to help you get off to a great start. Despite a shift to being online, you can still participate in synchronous and asynchronous activities.
Our asynchronous Orientation Module can be found online, and outlines resources, policies, procedures and other essential information through a combination of interactive videos, quizzes and short practice assignments.
The Live Orientation will be delivered by current students and alumni, helping you to review essential module content through interactive gamification.
Academic Support Workshops
Get the academic help you need to excel. We offer tips for academic success, writing, planning your program, information on VWs and GPA, and a walkthrough of how to apply to the UM.
We also host interactive sessions with guest speakers who discuss what to expect when you enter your faculty at UM. Many workshops are now online as video tutorials to accommodate your schedule.
Academic Success Skill Tutorials
Transition to university
ICM regularly organizes social events just in case you needed more reasons to make new friends! You can also develop leadership skills and improve academic outcomes, all while supporting your personal health and well-being.
Below are a few examples of our student leadership opportunities!
Join our Student Leadership Training Day each term to develop your skills. Go even further by talking on the role of Student Leader Manager, or attend other session such as customer service and conflict resolution.
Our Student Leadership Program gets you involved in any of our five student groups: Social Committee, Cultural Ambassadors, Peer Advisors, Peer Educators, and Marketing Influencers.
Be a friendly mentor your peers can count on. You’ll work closely with the Student Success Advisors to address questions and concerns, as well as helping students get the resources they need.
If you excel in your academic courses, now you can help your peers do so too. Through Zoom tutoring sessions, you’ll provide help, feedback and informational resources in a variety of subject areas.
If you’re enthusiastic about creating a supportive space for everyone, you might be a Cultural Ambassador in the making. Help create awareness of ICM’s cultural diversity and Canadian culture.
Become the face of ICM as you interact with future students and share your experiences on ICM’s social media channels. You’ll engage directly with prospective students to help them feel part of the ICM family even before they enrol.
