SGS Webinars for Newly Admitted Graduate Students

SGS Webinars

Join staff from the School of Graduate Studies, as well as representatives from across U of T, during upcoming interactive webinars. We’ll answer your questions regarding registration, housing, graduate awards, family care, and other graduate-focused programs and services at the University of Toronto. 

Please note that these webinars are intended to provide university-wide information. We will not be able to answer program-specific questions about course selection or enrolment. We will also not be able to offer advice on applying for study permits, or other immigration issues. See below for information about where to find support for study permit applications.

Thursday, July 7, 2022 – Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC)
5:00-6:00 pm ET

Graduate students need to be able to communicate sophisticated information to sophisticated audiences. As you prepare to attend your first conference, to write your first proposal, or to publish your first paper, you will need stronger communication skills than those needed in undergraduate work. The Graduate Centre for Academic Communication (GCAC) provides graduate students with advanced training in academic writing and speaking. Register here, starting June 27.

How to participate?

Registration is required for each individual webinar. Please use the links above to register. The day before the webinar, you will be sent a unique link to join the session. If you cannot attend a session that interests you, register anyway to be sent a recording of the webinar.

On the day of the webinar, simply click the link you receive to open in your browser. Hosts will make their presentations before proceeding to a live Q&A. Participants will type questions in a moderated chat, and hosts will answer live. Please note that you should only ask questions about the subject of the webinar.

We look forward to hearing from you!
