Continuing Education Spring Term Cancelled
To the Trent University Continuing Education Community,
On March 13, 2020, in response to COVID-19 concerns, Trent University temporarily suspended classes at its Peterborough and Oshawa campuses with plans to resume classes online or through other alternative means of delivery beginning Wednesday, March 18. Trent campuses, offices, and residences will remain open and other operations will continue, with some ancillary services reviewing their practices and taking additional measures for health and safety. In addition, the University is cancelling all events that are not part of our core business at both campuses until further notice and suspending all university-sponsored travel outside of Canada until further notice.
Following the direction of the University, and in the interest of public health and the health of our community, the spring term for Trent Continuing Education has been cancelled. We will be in touch at a later time with information about the summer term. If you have registered for a course, please rest assured that you will receive a full refund over the coming days. There will be no action required on your part. If we require any information to process your refund we will reach out to you directly.
You can keep apprised of the University’s plans by checking our website at trentu.ca/COVID-19 . If you have specific questions about Continuing Education, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for continued understanding and support.
Dr. Michael Eamon
Director, Continuing Education

Trent’s Continuing Education program provides access to a variety of experts in different fields for learning in an informal, relaxed and personalized setting. The courses are offered at Traill College in the heart of downtown Peterborough, for easy access by the community.
“Traill College is perfectly placed to serve the community that was instrumental in creating Trent over 50 years ago. I am very happy to offer Continuing Education courses that embrace the ideals of lifelong learning that Trent was founded on,” said Dr. Michael Eamon, Principal of Traill College and Director of the Continuing Education program. “If you have a particular course you would like to see offered in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.”
Most classes are just $30 each if you register in advance (one and two-day workshops are $45- $165). Early registration ensures that we can run the course and provide enough course materials for everyone who is enrolled. We encourage you to bring friends to try out our classes, however, please note: students who arrive without registering (or who register late) will be asked to pay $40 for the class. Continuing Education reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment, so please register early.
Each class is designed to be self-contained while being part of a larger, thematic course. This means that you can take an entire course (comprising six or eight classes), or you can pick-and-choose the individual classes that best fit your schedule and interests. Registration and credit card payment can be done online.
Most classes are held during the evening downtown at Trent University’s Traill College from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
The majority of our classes are taught by bright, enthusiastic graduate students. This means that taking a Continuing Education course not only expands your education, but offers valuable experience to a new generation of teachers.
"The continuing education program was perfect for me, because I was able to attend classes and immerse myself in Academia on a small budget, while still going to work everyday. The classes were super accessible, and the vast topics to choose from made it very appealing for me. I learned so much, without being overwhelmed financially or schedule wise. I really recommend it to anyone who misses school, or wants a taste of university life!" - Y. Leghari
We are always looking for instructors and invite you to submit proposals for courses in a field of study or a topic that you excel in (i.e. music, art, language instruction, etc.). Trent University graduate students are offered first consideration, but we welcome all experienced members of the community to make proposals.
Please e-mail email@example.com with 1) a course proposal; and 2) a C.V. detailing past teaching experience.
