All graduate students attend the research seminars given by visiting scientists and other Chemistry students. Students can miss 10% of seminars per academic year. Missing is not excused for vacations or for any other reason that wouldn’t be accepted as an excuse for missing an academic commitment like an exam. For clarification on absences for teaching, illness, family concerns, or other reasons, consult with the instructor. Students who will miss because of research commitments at UVic or at other institutions must make prior arrangements with the Chem 509 instructor. Students who miss more than the allowable number of seminars will be required to make up for their misses by completing additional assignments as determined by the Chem 509 instructor. Specific guidelines for seminar attendance are available in .pdf formhere.

Graduate students take 2 (MSc) or 4 (PhD) lecture courses during their degree, chosen from the following list. Many of the courses are taught in tandem with fourth-year undergraduate courses of the same name, and current availability of these courses are listed elsewhere. The distinction between 500- and 600-level courses is of historical importance only.
