Together@Dal: Grad Edition

Meet 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 (T@DGE) orientation.

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


Workshops and panel discussions

Join us, in person or virtually, for an opportunity to learn more about life as a graduate student at Dal, what resources are available to you, and connect with fellow graduate students.
