Due to the situation surrounding COVID-19, you currently have to quarantine for 14 days when arriving from outside of Canada. Tamwood offers transfer services from the airport, as well as special Quarantine Packages, which combine accommodation (homestay, hotel, or residence) and meals for your 14 days of self-isolation. During this time, you will have a personal Student Care Manager, who checks in with you daily and makes sure that you are well, both physically and mentally.
During Your Program
During your program, your work will be graded on a regular basis. If you feel like you need any assistance or your teacher has concerns about your progress, you can talk to our Business Program Manager or Campus Manager about your issues. We also offer additional tests to potentially improve your marks.
If you study at Tamwood for more than 4 weeks, you can use our free personal coaching service. A teacher will work with you 1-on-1 to focus on your goals and help make a plan to achieve them through practice and exercises that you can do outside of class.
Private tutoring is also available if you want to work on your English skills in a more personalized setting.
As a Career student and Working Holiday participant, you are invited to join our “Living and Working in Canada” orientation and three job workshops upon arrival.

It is essential that you are happy with your life in Canada on and off-campus. Therefore, Tamwood offers social activities that let you explore your area, bring you tons of fun, and connect you with other international students. Our Tamwood Rangers will join the activities and make sure that it’s a great experience for everyone!
