Should you join the Land One study option in first year?

Should you join the Land One study option in first year?

Transitioning from high school to university can seem daunting at first. To make the move as easy as possible, 澳门二四六天天彩 offers a selection of first-year study options designed to help you build a community and take the stress out of registering for classes.

If you have been accepted into the Forestry or Land and Food Systems faculties, you are eligible to apply for the聽聽study option.


What is Land One?

Land One includes a selection of core courses in Biology, Economics, Math, and English, as well as an integrative seminar. You鈥檒l take all of these key classes with the 50 to 60 students who are admitted to the study option. You will also take part in a seminar, where you鈥檒l enjoy hands-on experiences, build relationships with your instructors, and learn how to solve the problems that are negatively impacting our land.


Why should you choose a first-year study option?

If you鈥檙e looking to make new friends from your first day, Land One could be the right path for you. You鈥檒l benefit from smaller class sizes in select courses and your seminar group, a dedicated study space, and low student-to-instructor ratios. Also, you will get to participate in experiential learning opportunities such as field trips and other hands-on activities.



Is Land One right for you?

To take part in Land One, you鈥檒l need to take all of the classes required for the program, which will provide you with 16 credits that can be applied to meet your program requirements. On top of that, you鈥檒l have time to choose additional courses in your first year that help you meet additional requirements and build your own educational path.

Land One鈥檚 seminar course covers a range of issues related to land use, climate change, food security, and sustainability. Much of your time will be spent discussing and addressing how to solve these problems, and you鈥檒l also take part in some hands-on activities. You鈥檒l also visit the 澳门二四六天天彩 Farm to learn more about sustainable food systems, and enjoy a two-day field trip to 澳门二四六天天彩鈥檚 Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, where you鈥檒l experience the coastal old-growth rainforest first-hand.

If you鈥檙e in Forestry, Land One is particularly useful if you plan to major in Forest Resources Management or if you鈥檙e taking your Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources Conservation.

If you鈥檙e in Land and Food Systems, you鈥檙e eligible for enrolment in Land One if you鈥檙e taking a Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology, or a Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Health. Land One will prepare you for all majors across those two programs.


How to apply

Applications to Land One are now open and the deadline is聽May 15,听2024.听Once you have been accepted into your Forestry or Land and Food Systems degree program, you will need to聽 through Land One鈥檚 website. As part of the process, you鈥檒l be asked to write a letter of intent (500 words maximum) explaining why you want to join the Land One cohort. Land One is limited by size, so apply early!

Enrolment in the study option may require additional high school courses not required for admission, so it鈥檚 important to聽听辞苍濒颈苍别.

Which Arts first-year study option is right for you?

Which Arts first-year study option is right for you?

After you鈥檝e been admitted to the Bachelor of Arts degree, you鈥檒l have to decide which courses to take when registration opens in June. That might seem like a long way off, but it鈥檚 worth thinking in advance about how you might like to structure your timetable.

There are two ways to shape your first year in the Faculty of Arts. The first, the Custom Timetable, lets you pick the classes you鈥檙e most interested in and build your own schedule. The second lets you join a predesigned course schedule for your first year, where you鈥檒l take nearly all of your classes with the same people.

For Arts students, there are two of these predesigned options to choose from:聽听补苍诲 the聽.


What are Arts One and CAP?

Arts One and CAP allow students to study together in small classes (between 20 and 100 students). Each brings courses and ideas together across different disciplines 鈥 for example literature, history, psychology, economics, and philosophy 鈥 by focusing on a shared topic or theme.

To complete either study option, you鈥檒l need to take all of the courses together , which are collectively worth 18 credits. You can also take up to two additional courses of your choice each semester.


Why should you choose Arts One or CAP?

Arts One and CAP ease the transition from high school to university by offering standard timetables, coordinated assignment schedules, access to an exclusive study space, dedicated academic advisors, and support from your fellow students and faculty.

Both study options admit a small number of students 鈥 around 100 in Arts One, and about 100 per stream in CAP. Because you鈥檒l spend most of your time with your cohort 鈥 sometimes in groups as small as four in Arts One, and 25 in CAP 鈥 you鈥檒l find it easier to make friends. You鈥檒l also work closely with your professors, helping you to make personal connections with faculty. Taking Arts One or CAP sets you up for a variety of degree pathways, and allows you to satisfy the first-year writing and literature requirements.


What鈥檚 the difference between Arts One and CAP?

Arts One

Arts One is a single, integrated course that is led by five instructors who work together to create the assignments and a reading list based on the year鈥檚 theme.

You鈥檒l read classical and contemporary texts and discuss their influence on culture and society, including novels, philosophical and political texts, films, drama, graphic memoirs, and more. The professors take turns to give the weekly lectures, and you鈥檒l work closely with one instructor who will lead your twice-weekly seminar discussions (20 students) and once-weekly tutorials, where you and three other students will read and evaluate each other鈥檚 essays.



In CAP, you鈥檒l get to choose from one of聽, each offering a different combination of courses from across the Faculty of Arts. This year, your streams will be Environment and Society (previously People and Planet); Individual and Society; Law and Society; Political Science, Philosophy, and Economics; and Media Studies, and allow students and faculty to discuss ideas from various perspectives.

While your CAP courses are separate, faculty work together to connect the concepts and issues you鈥檒l study, and to make sure your deadlines won鈥檛 overlap. Like Arts One, CAP classes are smaller than if you choose to create your own Custom Timetable, ranging from 25 students in the writing course to around 100 to 125 students in a lecture. As part of CAP, you鈥檒l also have the chance to participate in an annual student conference, and in its stream-wide academic and social events during the term.


How to apply

For Arts One, you鈥檒l sign up on Workday Student when registration opens in June by selecting the program course (i.e. ARTS 001A) and one seminar.

For CAP, you鈥檒l also sign up when registration opens in June by selecting your chosen CAP stream.

Registration for Arts One and CAP is on a first-come, first-served basis.

What we look for when evaluating your application

What we look for when evaluating your application

Yay! You’ve completed your 澳门二四六天天彩 application! It鈥檚 a huge accomplishment and brings you one step closer to reaching your university goals. Now you鈥檙e probably wondering what we look for when we鈥檙e evaluating your application.

澳门二四六天天彩 receives thousands of applications a year and, as much as we鈥檇 like to, we don鈥檛 have the space to admit everyone.

Our admissions process is competitive and comparative. It鈥檚 important to keep in mind that your application will be evaluated against all of the other applications we have received this year for the same degree.


First, do you meet the admission requirements?


The first thing we look at when evaluating your application is whether or not you meet 澳门二四六天天彩鈥檚 admission requirements. This includes:

General admission requirements

  • Have you graduated from high school?

English language requirements

Degree-specific requirements

  • Do you meet the specific requirements for the degree you鈥檙e applying to?
  • You may need to take certain high school courses, submit a portfolio or complete an interview depending on the degree you are applying to.

If you meet these admission requirements, we take a closer look at your application.


Next, we review your grades and course choices


The next step in your application evaluation is looking at your grades. We look at all of your Grade 11 (Junior level) and Grade 12 (Senior level) classes, paying special attention to courses that relate to the degree you鈥檙e applying to.

澳门二四六天天彩 also looks closely at which courses you chose to take in high school:

  • Did you pursue all of your academic interests by taking a range of different subjects?
  • Did you challenge yourself by taking academic courses, advanced courses, or first-year university courses?
  • Did you demonstrate knowledge in your chosen area of study by taking courses related to the degree you applied to at 澳门二四六天天彩?


Lastly, we look at your achievements beyond academics


After making sure that you meet the admission requirements and reviewing your grades and course choices, the last thing we look at is your personal profile – the essay questions in your online application.

We read your personal profile to get a sense of who you are, what you鈥檝e overcome and what you鈥檝e achieved. Your personal profile helps us to assess whether you鈥檙e prepared for university studies. It also helps us determine if you鈥檙e deserving of an entrance scholarship or award by telling us what you鈥檝e learned about your experiences, your academic and extracurricular achievements, and your leadership qualities.
