PhD Modes of Delivery

INFORMATION FOR CAMPUS STUDENTS:

Residency

The minimum on-campus residence requirement of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGSR) is one Fall or Winter term, or two Spring of Summer terms.  However, Faculty of Nursing students are strongly encouraged to spend more than the minimum time on campus in order to maximize their student experience.

Registration

All PhD students must register in at least 18 units of course weight in each September-April period.  The course weights may be comprised of a combination of coursework and thesis research.  (Note: a standard seminar course of 3 hours/week over a 4-month term = 3 course weights).  Each student must register in and be assessed fees for a minimum of 36 course weights over the duration of her/his program.  The course weights may be comprised of a combination of coursework and thesis research.  The opportunity for interdisciplinary study and study abroad also exists and inquiries from students interested in pursuing such an arrangement are welcome.

The majority of courses are offered face to face and a few are offered via e-learning.
