Faculty of Science 2021 Fall Term Update
We can’t wait to see you on campus in September.
Your safety and well-being remains our #1 priority in the Faculty of Science and we’ll continue to follow all public health guidelines.
The Faculty of Science plans to hold labs and tutorials on campus during the Fall term. You’ll be attending your labs and tutorials with small groups of students.
Off-campus fieldwork, research and community placements will be going ahead where allowed under public health guidelines in the host communities.
The majority of your lecture-based classes in the Faculty of Science will be delivered online during the Fall term. Lectures that are delivered online at the start of the Fall term will stay online until the end of the term, so there’s no need to keep track of whether you should be logging on or heading to campus for class.
Whether delivered on-line or on campus, lectures will be recorded so you can watch and learn at the times that work best for you.
You’ll take the majority of your tests and final exams online.
All of your instructors in the Faculty of Science will keep regular office hours during the Fall term, either on campus or on-line.
We are planning to return to in-person lectures being delivered on-campus for the Winter 2022 term.
