Grad Studio Dates and Times

Grad Studios consist of a tutorial and studio session. 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.

What are Grad Studios?

A typical Grad Studio starts with activities and discussions centered around a learning and research management topic, followed by a dedicated 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.
