Fall 2020 update – part 2 (additional details about fall term)

Update for incoming graduate students

Since my last update, we have been working on creating a plan for the fall term. Today I am sharing more details about our plans for the fall so you can plan for September with confidence.

You can now see details of every faculty’s course and course component offerings for the fall term online. We anticipate being able to restart on-campus research activities, including in-person research, throughout the summer, depending on the directives we get from public health. We aim to offer as much on-campus research as is possible for fall 2020.

Update for incoming students

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the University of Waterloo this Fall. We hope we can welcome you to campus in person in September, but we will only do so if it’s safe to do so.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we remain committed to delivering an outstanding Fall Term, no matter where you are. Our teams are working on plans for an excellent Fall semester that includes academically challenging courses and hands on learning to help you achieve your educational goals.
