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.
