For Current Students


Faculty in the School of Physiotherapy have begun planning for the fall term, since the University announced that fall classes will be online (with some face-to-face offered in the health professions for skills labs).  We are currently refining the fall schedules as more information becomes available.

The Faculty of Health and the School of Physiotherapy are looking at the principles for face-to-face skills labs, how they will be structured as well as when and where they will occur on campus. Background work is underway to protect your safety and to put in place measures for face-to-face skills labs, considering the continuing evolving guidelines around COVID-19.

Given that face-to-face skills lab offerings are being planned for the fall (subject to developments in COVID-19 and public health guidelines), we encourage you to plan to live in Halifax for the start of the fall term. Currently, all other elements of course delivery are planned for online delivery.  

We will continue to keep you apprised of any additional developments. Thank you for your continued patience as we work through these unprecedented challenges together.
