You shouldn’t need a university degree to understand how to get a university degree.

This website offers practical advice for high school students starting to plan for university. Very comprehensive information is offered, organized under three main sections: exploring university programs, logistics of applying and time line with to-do’s. It’s locally created by Mount Saint Vincent University.
