EDST Students: Online classes and other Covid-19 info
Dear new and returning EDST students,
We understand you have many questions about how you can start or continue your studies. We want to reassure you that we are continuing to offer classes and graduate supervision via a range of online platforms. At the moment, what we know is that all EDST courses in the 2020 Summer term (May-August) and 2020 Winter term 1 (September-December) will be offered online; there will be no in-person classes. No decision has been made yet about classes starting in January 2021.
Many of your questions—for example, about student visas, or housing, or the consequences of not moving to Vancouver for now—are relevant also to students outside of EDST, and the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (G+PS) as well as the Faculty of Education have created central information pages with the latest updates. We do not want to duplicate that information here because that would create a risk that we would miss an important update and you end up with outdated information. So, please consult the following pages:
We look forward to hearing from you on email, and seeing you in online meetings and classes. And, of course, we especially look forward to meeting you or seeing you again in person when conditions permit!
