2013-14 Student Handbook

Graduate Student Handbook

The SENS student handbook provides a broad overview of the school for new and returning students. Details about our faculty, staff, courses, funding opportunities and administrative guidelines for our three programs are outlined in the handbook, as well as information on University of Saskatchewan services and policies.

International Students

The International Student and Study Abroad Centre (ISSAC) provides resources and services for international and exchange students, including information on immigrating and applying for residency, obtaining a social insurance number (SIN), volunteering on campus and improving your English. 

Additionally, the College of Graduate Studies and Research (CGSR) has a wealth of resources for international students, including information on funding, admissions and language requirements.

Current Research Opportunities

Listings include current graduate and post-doctoral research opprtunities with SENS faculty. Research positions from affiliated centres, such as the Global Institute for Water Security or the Toxicology Centre, may also be cross-posted here. 

Connecting With Your Supervisor

Do you have questions about funding, research responsibilities or program management? CGSR has produced a document identifying the roles and responsibilities between you and your graduate supervisor.

Student Travel Award

SENS can provide financial assistance to graduate students who wish to participate in academic-related conferences and other formal academic activities. 

Students are also encouraged to apply for the College of Graduate Studies and Research travel award and other appropriate sources of travel funding.
Please note that funding for this initiative varies from fiscal year to fiscal year.
