Academic Skills Club

The Academic Skills Club organizes hands-on workshops facilitated by graduate students, for graduate students. We offer workshops on programming languages, computational and analytical skills, conference submission and etiquette, soft research skills, document and image editing, statistics and more. For more information regarding workshops, please see the Upcoming in-class workshops page. Let us know which academic skills you would like to learn and which ones you would like to teach!

We are always looking for individuals who would like to share their impressive skills with others and facilitate a workshop. If you're interested, contact us through our Facebook page or email


Mitacs partners with the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies to provide engaging professional development workshops without charge for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows both online and in person. Each workshop is tailored to graduate students’ needs and is facilitated by a leading industry professional.

Mitacs sessions complement your studies by advancing the skills and knowledge needed to further your career and ensure that you thrive in both academic and industry settings. There has never been a better time to participate.

Workshops are free and open to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Please keep in mind that space is limited as Mitacs workshops are open to graduate students across the country.
