Co-curricular activities are an important part of your learning experience at university. They offer an invaluable experiential opportunity for personal and professional development. Your involvement in co-curricular activities helps you develop transferable skills such as critical thinking, time management, team building, capacity building, and reliability to name just a few. Co-curricular engagements not only offer important networking opportunities and the potential for personal and professional connections that can last a lifetime, they also help support positive academic attitudes and behaviours in their development of the self-confidence and self-esteem that is essential to your success at university and beyond!
Just as your academic record (transcript) is a chronological log of your academic activity at university, so too is your Co-Curricular Record a log your co-curricular involvement at McGill. Capturing the ways you get involved and engaged on campus, this document can be uploaded with your graduate application throughout Universities in Canada.
