Graduate School Base Camp

Graduate School Base Camp is a condensed version of key GradProSkills workshops which lay the foundations for a positive and productive grad school experience. During these six carefully selected one-hour workshops, participants will learn fundamental skills, gain an awareness of important university rules,  and be pointed to key resources.

Base camp is recommended for newly admitted graduate students, and in particular international students who are new to the Canadian university context and graduate students who are returning to university after an extended absence.


Base camp will be offered on Friday, January 11, 2019. Below you will find a tentative schedule for the day. 

Registration for Winter Base Camp 2019 will start on Friday, December 7. To register, login to your Student Center and enroll in course "GPLL20". This course is found in the professional development career, Winter 2019 term.
