Grad Studio Dates and Times
Grad Studios consist of a tutorial and studio session and focuses on technical academic skills. Although encouraged, students are not required to attend both sessions to register. If there is high demand, priority will be given to students who can attend the full Grad Studio. If the Grad Studio is part of a series, priority will be given to students who attend multiple Grad Studios in the series.
Fall Quarter Studios have concluded. Winter Quarter Studios will be announced in January 2022. Check out all of our past Studios here.
What are Grad Studios?
A typical Grad Studio starts with a tutorial on a technical learning and research or academic management topic, such as generating data plots to present data effectively or identifying and learning tools and applications to effectively manage your time. Activities and discussions centered around these topics are interwoven into the tutorial session which is then followed by a dedicated optional studio time where students can:
Apply activity and discussion takeaways to their own graduate work
Follow-up with Peer Learning Consultants on academic strategies
Connect with other students to share their experiences
Grad Studios are open to all graduate students, including co-term, Master’s, professional, and PhD students. For Engineering Grad Studios, registration priority for the studio component will be offered to School of Engineering graduate students.
How are Grad Studios Organized?
Grad Studios consist of a workshop/tutorial component and a work session component. The duration of the studio may vary depending on the topic being covered. Our studios usually average 1.5 hours. Students may attend just the tutorial or both components. Below is an example of a Grad Studio schedule.
10 AM - 11 AM PST: Tutorial session
11 AM - 11:30 AM PST: Optional Studio work session
