PhD Program Delivery

Flexible Program Delivery

The PhD program is offered through flexible delivery. Students can choose to complete their degree online, on-campus or through a combination of both. In consultation with the graduate supervisor, we encourage students to choose the format that works best for them.


The following residency requirement is currently under review: “The minimum period of residence on-campus is one Fall or Winter term, or two Spring or Summer terms. However, the Faculty of Nursing may require that a student spend more time than the stated minimum time on campus.” Periods of residency on campus may be recommended during particular periods of course work, graduate research assistantship, or progress on dissertation work.


All PhD students must, over the duration of their program, must pay the equivalent of at least three full years of program fees. 


Please see Tuition and Fees section of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research website.
