Study and Learning Support
At FIC, we understand that the transition from secondary school to university can be difficult. To help you gain the skills to successfully complete your program, FIC offers a variety of different study and learning support services.
A free and confidential advisory service is available to you in case things do not go as planned or personal problems arise. If anything is preventing you from enjoying your academic, social or personal life, then seeing an advisor at FIC is often a good start for resolving issues. FIC students also have access to SFU’s excellent health and counselling services.
Integrated Learning Skills
FIC’s Integrated Learning Skills course provides you with the skills to succeed in your university studies in a Canadian learning environment, as well as the skills to acquire knowledge and convey information to others. This program is compulsory for all direct UTP II students.
Orientation is a series of activities and programs at the start of your first term that provide valuable information and assistance to help you make a smooth transition to FIC and SFU. Attendance is compulsory for all new students. Students registered for SFU on-campus accommodation are also automatically registered for residence orientation.
FIC is located on the Burnaby Campus of Simon Fraser University in the greater Vancouver area. Vancouver is one of the world’s great cities. Situated between ocean and mountains, Vancouver is Canada’s third largest city and is home to an ethnically diverse population of over two million people.
Recognized as one of the most livable cities in the world, Vancouver is a safe and energetic city of vibrant cultural events and unparalleled opportunities for outdoor recreation. Whether you’re interested in exploring the downtown core, experiencing the lively nightlife or attending world-class theatre, music and dance performances, you’ll find countless opportunities to get out and have fun.
Summer days in Vancouver are long, warm and sunny, with an average temperature of 23C. Spring and Fall are also comfortable with moderate temperatures. An average temperature of 5C during winter gives Vancouver the mildest winter climate of all major cities in Canada.
SFU residences (On-Campus Accommodation)
FIC students may choose to live in SFU residences at the Burnaby campus, just a short walk from classes. The residences feature single-room accommodation with extra-long beds and high-speed internet access, and common rooms with shared TVs and microwaves. They also have a dining hall and a meal plan that is available to the entire residence community.
Buses operate between the campus and Greater Vancouver’s rapid transit system at the foot of Burnaby Mountain on a regular basis. SFU also has an on-campus hotel where visiting family members can stay.
Living in residence means being at the centre of it all: barbecue nights, movie nights and ‘rez’ challenges are just some of the regular activities that make on-campus residence fun! SFU students, staff and volunteers are there to help make the most of the residence experience — whether it’s sharing study tips, finding the best cup of coffee or joining in a volleyball game. For many students, residence life is one of the most memorable aspects of their undergraduate experience.
