Graduate Studies


Located in the heart of Ottawa, the Faculty of Education offers the best of both worlds—vibrant city life and tranquillity. Just a few steps away from Parliament Hill and the Rideau Canal, the University of Ottawa makes it easy to enjoy downtown activities and discover Canadian culture.

As a graduate student, you’ll learn from our world-renowned professors whose areas of research include educational technology, program evaluation, teaching in minority contexts and Indigenous studies, to name but a few.

If you qualify for an admission scholarship, you may find yourself working alongside these researchers through a teaching or research assistantship. If you don't we encourage you to apply for bursaries.  

We understand life as a graduate student can be challenging. You may find yourself juggling a job, family life and other challenges. To support you with your busy schedule, we offer you flexibility through distance education: online and hybrid courses. If you prefer, you can also take traditional classroom and most of our courses are offered in the evening.

You may also wish to take a class or two while preparing an application to one of our programs, as a special student

No matter where you come from or the career path you choose, you’ll be able to maximize your employment opportunities and deepen your knowledge with us.

We look forward to starting this new and exciting journey with you!
