Academic requirements vary depending on the student’s particular academic program.

Non-credit courses (FGSR) are offered to aid in the professional development of our graduate students.   These courses are optional and cannot be used to meet the academic requirements of individual graduate programs.  Some courses are free, and others are offered on a cost-recovery basis.  Students should consult with their thesis supervisor and/or graduate program coordinators before registering in any of these courses.
