Graduate Students

Discover our resources and meet the people that'll help you succeed as a graduate student.

Graduate Student Orientation

At Graduate Student Orientation (also known as GradO), you'll expand your network, and discover the tips and information you'll need to succeed in your graduate program.

At this event, you'll learn about:

  • tuition fees and how to pay them
  • finding and applying for scholarships
  • workshops and resources around campus
  • building a relationship with your supervisor
  • ways graduate school at UCalgary may be different from your previous educational experiences

Are you an international graduate student? International Graduate Essentials will provide you with important immigration information and content specific to your experience as a newly-arrived international student. Please ensure that you attend both International Graduate Essentials and GradO.

Further details about the 2020 Graduate Student Orientation will be posted here in late July. Please stay tuned to this page for updates.
