Your academic advice session is a great opportunity to discuss with the convener the direction in which you want your studies to go.  The convener will be able to advise you about course selection and content of courses that you will undertake as part of your program. Ideally you should bring along a copy of your academic record/academic transcripts as these will greatly assist your convener when giving you course advice.
