Transitioning into university life can be challenging. It’ll require a much higher level of independence than you might have been used to in high school. But help is available to help you make a success of it.
The Faculty of Science First Year Science (FYS) provides support that’s tailored to the needs of first year students. Get advice on course selections, transfers, academic standings, study skills and more. Peer mentors can also help you learn the ropes during first year.
At the end of high school, Anny-Aysel Ineza knew that she wanted to study “something related to mathematics.” She chose Financial Mathematics at Ryerson. “You gain a perspective that a degree just in finance or just In math doesn't provide. The program prepares you to enter so many in-demand fields or to pursue graduate studies.” Over the years, she held executive positions at the Ryerson Science Society and Course Union, co-founded the Women in Mathematics Group, competed at the Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) —even joined the Women’s Ultimate Frisbee team. “It’s not easy to juggle academics and activities. But when you…have a positive impact on others, you see the bigger picture. It’s worth it, and it’s important.” Following a summer internship TD, the bank offered her a role in analytics and data science after graduation.
After some work experience in the financial industry, Sofya Chernyavskaya enrolled in the Mathematics and its Applications program. “Ryerson is a supportive community where every student is offered the flexibility to shape their own path,” she says. “My first co-op was a 16-month internship at IBM Canada as a financial analyst. Working in a company of such enormous scale really expanded my view on STEM careers.” Sofya was also president of the Women in Mathematics group and contributed to the STEM4Girls initiative. “Seeing the excitement that young students have for mathematics has been one of my most rewarding experiences!”
