Participate in workshops designed to support you through the milestones of your degree. 

GRADnavigate is a series of workshops designed to answer questions about graduate school and help you thrive in your degree. We'll cover important topics like:

  • Planning your degree
  • Understanding comprehensive exams
  • Navigating supervisory relationships
  • And more!

We know that graduate students often feel that there are things they should know more about, may have missed, or need more guidance for, especially around their program's academic milestones or expectations. Not only will these workshops help answer these questions, but will also help you build community with your peers and introduce you to University staff who are here to support your graduate student experience.

Pushing Boundaries: The Power of Interdisciplinary Research 

Date, Time: March 20, 2024, 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. (Lunch provided)

Have you wondered about the difference between interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and cross-disciplinary research? Would you like to learn more about exciting research happening on campus? 

Interdisciplinary work is increasingly prevalent in Canadian universities, and we know students have many questions about their potential for interdisciplinary work. At this event, you will hear from current members of the Provost’s Program for Interdisciplinary Postdoctoral Scholars at the University of Waterloo, who will share their journeys towards interdisciplinary excellence.  Join us to explore how to use interdisciplinary approaches in your own work, enhancing collaboration and strengthening your research impact.

This session is of interest to all students, but particularly those applying for doctoral or postdoctoral positions with an interdisciplinary approach.  Postdoctoral scholars are also welcome to join us. 

This is an in-person event. Lunch will be provided.  Registration is required.
