Orientation - Together@Dal: Grad Edition

Get introduced to the Dalhousie community

Each semester, the Faculty of Graduate Studies welcomes new students joining us from locations locally, nationally and around the world. To bring us all together we’ve created the Together@Dal: Grad Edition orientation program.

During orientation, you’ll have access to a series of online modules that you can explore at your own pace designed to introduce you to resources available to you at Dalhousie and equip you to start your degree program.  

Have a question about the program? Email us.


The four Together@Dal: Grad Edition modules are:

Module 1: What the Dal? 
Find out how to get involved in the Dalhousie community and discover the campus resources available to help you succeed.

Module 2: Thriving in Graduate School 
Learn how to stay motivated, resilient and confident when starting your program online.

Module 3: Relationship Building 
Nobody makes it through graduate school alone. Discover the importance of making social connections and identify tips to stay in touch with your peers, professors, and departmental staff.

Module 4: Creating a Graduate Student Game Plan 
Develop strategies to kick-start your graduate studies and build your skills through professional development.

#GradChats and Q & A's

Connect with your graduate peer mentors and ask all your questions about the Dal graduate student life. 

In-person and live virtual events

Join us in person or virtually, for an opportunity to learn more skills, meet other graduate students, and connect with your peer mentors.

Get recognized for your efforts

When you complete the reflection activities at the end of each of the four modules, the Together@Dal: Grad Edition program can be added to your Co-Curricular Record, a document that records your extra-curricular and volunteer activities.

We’re looking forward to getting started and welcoming you to our community. We are all in this Together@Dal!
