Summer Residencies

You will complete two summer residencies, one in July of your first year and one in July of your second year.

Each summer residency is three weeks long and entails full-time, face-to-face, daytime classes with your cohort. During each residency, you will complete two of the program's eight required courses.

Residencies are typically scheduled in July. Pending sufficient enrollment, summer residencies are offered biannually in a variety of locations in Alberta and beyond. Please contact for this year's locations.

    I don't live in Edmonton. Where can I stay during the summer residency?

    Some students stay with friends or family members over the three-week period. If you require paid accommodation, a number of options are available, including nearby hotels and Bed & Breakfasts. Should you wish to stay on campus--only steps away from your classes, there are two options:

    1. University of Alberta
    2. St. Joseph's College (please indicate that you are an MES student)
