We are optimistic and are planning for in-person classes beginning with Opening Week (Week of Aug 30) and for all Winter Term 1 (Sept – Dec) classes. However, we are unable at this time to make any guarantees as to the mode of delivery. Classes may be delivered online, in-person, or through a mixture of the two. Even if Opening Week and Winter Term 1 begin in an online format, all students are required to be in Vancouver and fully settled. Students must be in Vancouver so that they can participate in any in-person activities, easily align with their various project groups, and pivot to expanded in-person instruction with short notice, in the case that we begin the term online.
For full-time, daytime programs:
We are committed to starting our programs as per the usual schedule, without any delayed starts. Your classes in Winter Term 1 will be scheduled in the standard, daytime delivery format, whether online or in-person. Our standard daytime delivery is described below:
- Most classes are scheduled Monday to Friday.
- On most days, classes begin at 8:00am and end at 6:00pm PDT/PST, however, there may be some evening classes.
- Group work, office hours, career sessions, self-study, networking events, etc. extend into evenings and weekends; please be fully and flexibly available. We strongly caution against part-time work given the demands of our program.
