Summer 2023 – Fall-Winter 2023-2024 Program Statement

To assist you in planning for the coming terms, below is some general information about the mode of delivery of courses for Summer 2023 and Fall-Winter 2023-2024.  Precise information about the mode of delivery of each course will be available when the course schedule is released.

Summer 2023 Course Offerings

Many of OISE’s Summer 2023 courses (May-June and July-August) will be offered online.  This includes all core courses in the Master of Teaching and the majority of elective courses in the Master of Arts in Child Study and Education. Other programs will offer some courses in-person and others online.

Fall 2023-Winter 2024 Course Offerings

The majority of OISE's Fall 2023-Winter 2024 courses will be held in-person, with a significant number of courses being offered online in synchronous and/or asynchronous formats in keeping with our commitment to offer flexibility and maximize access for our students, in particular our professional, part-time and flex-time students.

Courses in the Master of Teaching program will be delivered mostly in-person. All Master of Arts in Child Study and Education courses will be in-person. In addition, a large majority of courses in programs where students are being trained in professional practice in psychology and psychotherapy will be delivered in-person. Courses in other programs will be delivered in various modes, including in-person and online. For additional information about modes of course delivery in your particular program, please consult with your program administrators. Precise information about the mode of delivery of each course will be available when the course schedule is released.

Students who complete an external practicum placement may be required by their placement site to be fully vaccinated in order to complete their practicum.  This might be the case particularly for placements in the health sector.  Please consult your program administrators for more details.

Students who are employed as Graduate Assistants or Teaching Assistants are required to be located in geographical proximity to the applicable University premises in order to attend and perform their duties on University premises as of the starting date of their contract.  

International Students are required by Canadian federal authorities to take 50% of more of their program in-person in order to qualify to apply for a Canadian Post-Graduate Work Permit upon graduation.  International students can review Canadian immigration information for students and ways to consult with international student immigration advisors at   Students interested in working in a particular country other than Canada upon graduation should check the national degree accreditation information on the country(ies) of interest.  Please note that national certification agencies in some countries may only recognize degrees completed in-person. 

Health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and partners are of paramount importance to us.  While we remain optimistic that the public health situation will allow us to safely proceed with a return to more in-person activities, our plans are guided by Public Health recommendations and subject to change if necessitated by external circumstances.

At OISE, we strongly encourage the continued use of medical masks for those using areas of the building where social distancing is not possible, including elevators and hallways connecting classrooms.
