courses for High School Students

Get Ahead in University Before You Even Start

Welcome to TWU! If you are in grades 11 & 12 this fall, we would like to offer you a chance to take university courses throughout the summer. Complete a course that can count towards your future university degree. You can even consider asking your high school principal or counsellor if you can count this course towards your high school diploma as one of your grade 12 courses and receive dual credit. Since this is your first experience at TWU, we will offer courses at a cost of $2001 (Canadian citizens) and $2031, (International citizens) which is $300 off the regular price.

The Summer Semester is an educational experience that allows you to engage with other students and faculty while earning university credit. Courses will be offered in an online format varying in length from 3 – 10 weeks. Please view the list of courses below:


If you are still a high school student or graduated but never enrolled at TWU, this is a special offer for you.

I am in grade 10 or 11, or Grade 12

Students will take a course alongside current university students.
