Academic study and research are the core of the graduate experience at UBCO. Many resources are available to help graduate students thrive academically and take charge of their educations.

The College of Graduate Studies supports current master’s and doctoral students throughout a student’s graduate career. For help planning your academic program, speak to a Graduate Program Coordinator in your program of interest. Coordinators can assist with program planning, degree requirements and other course-related questions.

Thesis and Dissertation

A thesis is the final product of a student’s time in graduate school. Students should begin planning their thesis from the beginning of their program.



There may be situations where graduate students would like more information about our registration process or visiting student agreements.


Graduate Student-Supervisor Expectations

The rapport between a graduate student and supervisor is one of the most important factors in graduate student satisfaction.


Leaves and Withdrawals

There may be situations where graduate students need to pursue a leave of absence, or would like more information about withdrawals.
