Need help?

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.

Please feel free to contact the Registrar’s Office if you have any questions about our academic experience and thesis writing guides, our IDÉ student portal, forms, term courses, or any other topic related to your academic career.
