School of Graduate Studies Admissions Statement

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world in a few short months. Agile and judicious adaptation is needed to survive and thrive beyond these uncertain times on individual and institutional levels. While every aspect of life has been altered for us all, it is our students (both current and future) who have faced the most severe challenges.

Concordia’s School of Graduate Studies recognizes the urgency of this transformation and fully supports more flexible admissions policies to allow for a more holistic interpretation of candidates. Applications will be reviewed within the context of the pandemic, and applicants are encouraged to illustrate their individual circumstances in their personal statements.

The world has changed and the need for innovative researchers and thinkers has never been greater. It is our duty and our pride to welcome those who would undertake the challenge.
