Trent Forward: Our Response to COVID-19
As we continue to adapt and adjust to what is, for the present time, the “new normal”, the first and most significant priority for the School of Graduate Studies remains to enable our students to continue their journey towards completing their degree requirements and ultimately graduate from their programs.
Fall 2020 Update
Trent Forward is a plan that emphasizes the health and well-being of our campus community; our commitment to excellence in teaching and research; and the success of our past, current and future students.
Trent is committed to “multi-access” learning in the fall of 2020. When and where possible, we will open our on-campus operations, spaces and activities, and are planning on-campus academic and social events and activities for students. At the same time, most courses will be made available through online or remote delivery. In some cases, programs, courses or course components may require in-person instruction (in the case of labs, specialized hands-on or small cohort courses, workshops, seminars, etc.).
Students will be welcomed to Peterborough or Oshawa where they will help us define the "new normal" for campus interaction. It is too early to know, but we hope to be in a position to consider more courses and activities in person in our next Winter term.
We will continue to keep you informed on further updates regarding our plans. Further questions regarding the delivery of courses for fall should be directed to your Program Director.
More information specific to graduate students can be found on the School of Graduate Studies FAQ page.
A note for new applicants
