Take part in virtual Orientation for an interactive experience, where you can watch presentations and participate in crash courses on essential academic skills, including must-know techniques for time management and thriving in an online learning environment. You'll also get important information specific to your Faculty.
What else can you do as part of Orientation? Visit our virtual booths to ask any questions you may have about getting ready for your first term and to connect with staff, student mentors and the current Concordians behind many of our student associations.
The staff from the International Students Office will be there answering your questions live. Talk to them about immigration documents, health insurance, working in Canada or anything else that's on your mind.See event program
The Graduate Student Orientation strives to foster a space for intellectual exploration that is at the same time open, inclusive and diverse. We urge the Orientation participants to engage with one another encouragingly and constructively, and especially encourage participants to interact with those whose viewpoints, interests, cultural backgrounds, or experiences may be unfamiliar to them or outside their comfort zone.
The organizers expect that anyone participating in the Orientation will – at minimum – treat others with respect for their dignity and autonomy. Correspondingly, behavior that violates these principles will not be tolerated, and may include sanctions up to and including expulsion from the event. Anyone who feels threatened or harassed while participating in the Orientation should not hesitate to reach out to the organizers and can expect that any concerns shared will be taken seriously and handled with both discretion and dispatch.
Anyone wishing to report an issue or concern during the Concordia Student Orientation is strongly encouraged to reach out to the organization team. They can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This address will be checked hourly between 8:30am and 1:30pm EDT on the day of the event.
Please note that participants may face penalties for the deliberate misuse or abuse of these spaces.
