Studying Online in Canada:
Candid Conversations with 7 Schools

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed just about everything, including the way we learn.

With that in mind, we sat down with representatives from seven of Canada’s top post-secondary ApplyBoard partner schools for a series of candid conversations about studying online in Canada. We asked these schools what they’re doing to ensure student success and why now is the perfect time to pursue post-secondary education.

These conversations explore:

  • How institutions adapted to online or hybrid learning
  • How students studying online are accessing their course materials, including lectures and textbooks
  • What the feedback has been from students 
  • What support services are available for students studying online
  • What deadlines students need to meet to begin studying this Winter
