The School of Graduate Studies operates on a trimester basis, with three terms defined as: Fall Term (September to December); Winter Term (January to April); and Spring/Summer Term (May to August). The academic year begins with a Fall Term followed by a Winter Term. In the following table, a year is based on three terms: fall, winter, spring/summer. Please note that only the Master of Education, Master of Environmental Science and Master of Environmental Studies graduate programs offer the flex-time completion option.
Funding is available to graduate students from both internal and external sources. Internal funding includes teaching/research assistantships, faculty research grants, and Nipissing Graduate Scholarships. The value of these scholarships varies. Students are also encouraged to compete for scholarships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS), the Canada Graduate Scholarship, and the Mackenzie King Memorial Scholarship.
Each year, we host a graduate information session for prospective graduate students at our North Bay campus (date and room to be confirmed). This session will provide an opportunity to gain more information on available graduate programs, funding and research opportunities. Students will also have the opportunity to meet prospective graduate advisors, tour graduate facility and learn more about services available at Nipissing.

3MT is a university wide competition for Masters and Doctoral students in which participants present their research and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges. The challenge is to present complex research material in an engaging, compelling way, using only one slide. The three minute thesis competition provides graduate students with an opportunity to refine skills that can be transferred after graduation to diverse career paths. Distilling research into a clear form, without over-simplifying or making overly-complex, and highlighting the wider implications of this research are important skills to carry into post-graduate employment and public service.

Nipissing University actively supports quality research that creates a deeper, clearer understanding of the world. Excellent research could change the way we think and act. Research that creates paradigm shifting ideas or generates practical knowledge helps us to understand our world and to address immediate issues. Research also fuels teaching.
