Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Additional Qualification (AQ) courses are a combination of live streaming classroom and online hours, but distribution varies from course to course to suit learning styles and schedules. Live streaming hours provide immediate feedback and answers to questions in a personalized learning environment. Online components allow participants to structure their learning around individual commitments and in a convenient location.

Browse our currently offered AQ courses and register for the courses you require.
