Courses with a mandatory in-person component are identified when you enrol and are listed on the Registrar's website.

Graduate Students must submit all required documentation to their Graduate Program Assistant by email.

Further information including links to relevant forms can be found at: Research Ethics page.

Please note that, subsequent to obtaining ethics approval, prior to commencing any research activities, researchers are advised to review the latest updates on research involving human participants.

Note: Graduate Students are asked to inform the Faculty of Graduate Studies of any delay or hiatus in research by email to the appropriate Graduate Milestones and Progression Coordinator. Required information includes the following: name, student number, graduate program, research ethics certificate number, research stop date, and the expected start date for research to resume.
