Sweater season is coming soon! McGill SCS students are also preparing for a new academic semester or course. Don’t forget to read up on the resources available to support you during your studies. If you are studying while working and live far from campus, don’t let distance and time keep you from accessing resources. Here’s a list of resources for busy, hard-working professionals!

McGill Library

You may think of libraries as orientated towards academic research, however, there are many services that benefit those focused on professional development. Subject libraries can help you dive deep into topics. The Management and Business subject guide includes exclusive resources, like Mintel reports. Learning a language? Stream video and films that will keep you inspired.

MACES Computer Labs, Study Space and Meeting Rooms

Even if you aren’t on campus often, it’s good to know that you can access space that’s free and exclusive to McGill SCS students. Sometimes, nothing can beat an in-person brainstorm or group presentation practice. You can reserve a quiet space completely free of charge!

MACES Health and Dental Insurance

If your workplace does not offer health benefits or you aren’t currently employed, consider the benefits good health can bring through insurance offered by MACES. If you already have insurance, this plan is still a great way to complement it and be all covered! Worry not about paying for a surprise cavity or the costs of mental health care. Learn more and be sure to inform yourself on the insurance package before the opt-out deadline. Or, watch the video below for a quick summary!

Meditation and Mindfulness

Mindfulness isn’t just for yoga gurus. Learning how to meditate can help you through times of stress and difficulty. There are various events and services offered at McGill for exploring mindfulness and meditation.

McGill Writing Centre

Get help with an important foundation of academic success – writing. Write well to take the stress off assignments. Book an appointment with a tutor to fit help around your busy schedule.


Walksafe is a great service for students taking evening classes. Would you like to be accompanied while walking or traveling to feel safer at night? Good news! The service is available to Continuing Studies students.
