First Year

Being a successful student is rewarding, but it’s hard work.

That's why our focus on student success goes beyond the classroom to include the many facilities and support services designed to help you thrive. Whether you're a new student looking for a peer tutor or career counselling, there’s always a helping hand available. Fanshawe has a support system that has you covered from orientation to graduation and beyond.

Here’s some important information to help you prepare for your Fanshawe experience.
