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. Participants will learn fundamental academic and self-management skills, as well as gain an awareness of important Concordia rules and 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.

Important Note

Important Note for International Students

Quebec-Immigration and the Quebec Ministry of Education require that students be covered, continuously and without interruption, by a valid and adequate medical insurance plan for the duration of their studies in the Province of Quebec, Canada.  

Concordia International Health Insurance plans begin on September 1, and are based on registration. The student is solely responsible for any medical expenses they may incur, prior to the beginning of the Concordia International Health Insurance Plan, and therefore, should not expect any financial assistance whatsoever from Concordia University for any such expenses.

To participate in Base Camp, you must have extended health insurance coverage for August. Please purchase insurance privately or contact the International Students Office for more information regarding the health insurance policies and your responsibilities.
