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, and PhD students. For Engineering Grad Studios, registration priority for the studio component will be offered to School of Engineering graduate students.
