Studying at INRS during the pandemic

At the time of publishing those guides (July 2022), sanitary conditions allow INRS ton conduct all its activities normally.

Unless there is a change in the health situation in Quebec, courses and teaching activities will be in attendance in the Fall 2022 semester. Students will need to be available to travel to their campus.

All campuses and research facilities are accessible following health regulations. At the time of publishing this guide, the sanitary rules are minimal.

Everything for success in higher education

You will be required to read many guides and other documents and complete and submit forms between the time you begin your graduate studies at INRS and the time you receive your graduate degree. You will need to master the Moodle course platform, access and update your student record on the online portal, and borrow from our specialized libraries.

General study guides

What is the recipe for successful master’s or doctorate studies? What are copyright and intellectual property in research? How can you understand intellectual and research integrity?

You’ll find all the answers in our guides to successful higher education.

Succeed in your research project

You have primary responsibility for the success of your research project. So it’s important to make sure you have all the information you need, starting with the Guide to Graduate Studies (in French). In addition to walking you through your first steps at university, it also tells you how to approach each stage of your academic journey.

Open communication with your research supervisor is key to success. It’s normal for your opinions to differ from time to time or for misunderstandings to occur, but it’s important to be able to talk about them.

In the event of a dispute, or if you are having trouble communicating, notify your program director. If you have a complaint about supervision, you can contact the Graduate Studies and Student Success Service.

The Registrar’s Office and the Graduate Studies and Student Success Service are responsible for providing guides and documentation to support the student community and faculty through each stage of a graduate program.
